The event in Sydney is very topical before the Australian Open championship. The participants of the ATP Sydney will save their time as there’s no need to make a long flight to Melbourne. Also the players benefit of adapting to the Australian weather. Obviously, top players are resting this week but the well-known names from the top 30 will make their appearance on Sydney courts.
Weather Conditions at the Apia International
These days in Sydney there will be 27-30 degrees above zero. While at the Australian Open courts there are 33-37 degrees. It means that the participants can prepare for the extreme heat. Moreover, the weather in Sydney is rather windy (about 6 meters per second in the evening), which can negatively affect the player’s serves.
