Australian Open preview vrouwen 2019

January 14-27, 2019 -- De Australian Open, het eerste Grand Slamtoernooi van het seizoen, vindt plaats in Melbourne. Het toernooi van 2019 kent de introductie van tie-breaks in de finale set. Tot nu toe kon een speler alleen de finale set winnen met twee games voorsprong, wat leidde tot marathongames, maar de nieuwe regels houden in dat wanneer de wedstrijd 6-6 bereikt in de finale set, zal de speler die het eerste 10 punten behaalt, winnen.

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.
