The hottest heatwave in 100 years is melting southern Australia, including Melbourne — the site of 2014 Australian Open.
Temperatures hit 108 degrees during Tuesday’s action. As a result, a ball boy passed out, a Canadian player collapsed during a match, and Serbian player Jelena Jankovic burned her legs on a hot chair.
With temperatures remaining in the 100s until the weekend, it could be the hottest Australian Open ever.
We collected some startling photos of the searing heat.
