Australian Open Tennis: the day that never should have begun has been suspended

Play was suspended at around 2pm according to the Australian.

The WBGT was 32C at 11am.  Now at 3:30pm it is 34C.

The play should never have begun.

That’s what the sports medicine guidelines say.  Consider postponement to a cooler part of the day or cancellation at WBGT30.  It was beyond that much earlier in the day.

Hi, Thank you for taking a look at this blog. I work in engineering, ergonomics, creativity, design, training, etc. Often this is about helping solve legal puzzles through accident analysis. Sometimes it is about thinking up better designs for equipment, workplaces, and systems. This blog is about good design and bad design, accident analysis and how it can be done better, and how we can make a better, safer world by design!
