January 14-27, 2019 -- Das Australian Open, das erste Grand Slam der Saison, wird in Melbourne ausgetragen. 2019 kommt mit der Einführung von tie-breaks
im Finalset. Bisher konnte ein Spieler nur das Finalset gewinnen, wenn er zwei-Spiele-Advantage hatte, was oft genug zu Marathon Duellen führte. Mit der neuen Regel bedeutet das bei Erreichen von 6:6 im Match, dass der Sieger 10 Punkte erhält.

A further change at this year’s Australian Open means that men’s singles players will be allowed 10-minute breaks if temperatures reach hazardous levels.

Organisers agreed to extend their Extreme Heat Policy after temperatures in the shade approached 40C during the 2018 tournament. A 10-minute break was already in place for the women’s and junior singles, plus a 15-minute break for wheelchair singles.

Under the new policy, if a reading of 4.0 is recorded on the Australian Open Heat Stress Scale during a men’s singles match, a 10-minute break will be allowed after the third set. Breaks in women’s, junior or wheelchair singles matches will take place between the second and third sets.

If a reading of 5.0 is recorded, the tournament referee can suspend play.
