Zwoegen en zweten in bloedheet New York

Het is puffen op de US Open. De thermometer flirt er met de 40 graden. New York is zo'n bakoven dat de toernooidirectie de Heat Rule vanonder het stof haalde. In matchen wordt een break van 10 minuten voorzien tussen de tweede en derde set.

Het is puffen op de US Open. De thermometer flirt er met de 40 graden. New York is zo'n bakoven dat de toernooidirectie de Heat Rule vanonder het stof haalde. In matchen wordt een break van 10 minuten voorzien tussen de tweede en derde set. Novak Djokovic werd zelfs ziek van de hitte. Hij vroeg om een emmer naast de baan omdat hij bang was dat hij moest overgeven. Desondanks won hij zijn partij tegen de Hongaar Marton Fucsovics. Ook David Goffin ondervond hinder van de extreme temperaturen. "We wisten dat het een moeilijke dag ging worden. Je hebt het ook gezien aan de vele krampen en opgaves. Ik heb in de wedstrijd van sokken en schoenen gewisseld want het water kwam uit mijn schoenen. Ik gleed uit over mijn eigen zweet." Ook onze landgenotes Elise Mertens, Alison Van Uytvanck en Kirsten Flipkens konden regelmatig verkoeling en een handdoek gebruiken.
