The Latest: Warm temperatures expected again at Wimbledon
By The Associated Press
LONDON (AP) --- The Latest from Wimbledon (all times local):
The umbrellas will be out at Wimbledon on Wednesday, as protection from the sun.
The All England Club normally readies itself for rain delays, but so far this
year it's been about the heat. Wednesday's temperatures could reach 35 degrees
C (95 degrees F), a number rarely seen in southwest London.
"I can't remember it being this hot at Wimbledon," said Tracy Austin, a former
top-ranked player who twice reached the semifinals at the All England Club and
who now works for the BBC as a commentator.
The temperature during Andy Murray's first-round victory on Tuesday was said to
have reached 41 degrees C (106 degrees F) on court. But outside the stadium,
the temperature stayed near the 30 degree C (86 degree F) mark.
