Maria Sharapova Happy with Changing Heat Policy in Australian Open 2008

World no. 5 Maria Sharapova has been full of praise for the Australian Open organizers because of changing the extreme heat policy. She had to play against Camille Pin in the first round of Australian Open 2007 in more than 40 degree heat, which he dubbed as inhumane. The finalist of Australian Open 2007 women’s singles, Sharapova thanked the organizers for changing the rule by which an ongoing match can be stopped, if there is extreme heat out there.

The Age reported:

"I'm happy the Australian Open organisers listened to the players because that's very important when you know your opinions are heard," Sharapova said.

"There were a few of the guys playing out there three out of five sets, while the other hundreds of players were in the comfort of the locker room.

"I think the players are very thankful."

No doubt, there are many players who have similar reaction in this regard as many players complained regarding this policy in the past. Maria Sharapova could not win any grand slam tournament last year. Her ranking also fell down. So, it is obvious that Sharapova will try her best to win her first grand slam title since the 2006 U.S. Open title. Now, let us see if the Russian can win the title of Australian Open this time around.
