A searing heatwave is set to disrupt the first week of the Australian Open in Melbourne. Temperatures will hit 106 degrees on Tuesday, according to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology , and remain in triple-digits until the weekend. The BOM predicts extreme heatwave conditions in Melbourne and much of Victoria. From Weather.com: Many players train in places like Florida of Las Vegas, but nothing can really prepare you for long matches in 106-degree heat. Andy Murray told SI.com , " The air is extremely, extremely hot as well. I mean, in Miami, there tends to be a breeze. Here when it’s 40 degrees, it can be calm. The air feels warm in your face. Your legs and your feet burn." A heatwave also hit Australia during the tournament last year, but it wasn't as hot. The hottest Australian Open ever had an average temperature of 94 degrees , according to CNN. As long as temperatures don't dip too much in the second week, this could break that record.
