Heat stress scale Australian Open develops new extreme heat policy
31 December 2018 Current Affairs: Tennis Australia announced that a new “Heat Stress Scale” has been developed which takes into account air temperature, radiant heat, humidity and wind speed. The action was taken after complaints from players regarding the health and safety risks under the extreme heat of Melbourne, Australia.
The new “Heat Stress Scale” will be used in during the Australian Open which will be held from 14th January 2019 to 27th January 2019 at Melbourne, Australia.
The scale ranges from one to five and the play will be suspended if the heat stress scale reading is 5.0 or above.
 A 10 minute break between the third and fourth set will also be given in men’s singles matches whenever the Heat Scale reading is 5 or more than 5.
