Extreme temps at the Australian Open
Tennis players are some of the finest athletes in the world -- you try running back and forth for four hours while hitting a ball moving at 100 miles per hour -- but even they're being overcome by the extreme heat at this year's Australian Open. Temperatures topped 109 degrees in Melbourne Park, causing some matches to suspend play. Fans aren't having it easy either -- 10,000 fewer spectators attended the open on Thursday than did on Monday. It seems like fans these days have to choose between extremes, as evidenced by the shockingly low temperatures at some playoff football games this year.
