MELBOURNE, Australia - Australian Open organizers are confident they have weather proofed the first tennis major of the season with the unveiling of the third stadium with a retractable roof at Melbourne Park. Becky Sauerbrunn Jersey .The 7,500-seat Margaret Court Arena was officially opened Tuesday on the site of the previous show court next to Rod Laver Arena, which also has a retractable roof. It is the first Grand Slam venue to have three courts which can be covered in the event of rain or extreme heat, which is important in a continent of scorching droughts and flooding rains.The temperature topped 40 Celsius (104 F) for four straight days during last years tournament in the longest heat wave in Melbourne for more than a century. Heavy rain in the past has also caused lengthy delays in the match schedule.We have an incredible new tennis facility, Tennis Australia president Steve Healy said of the rebuilt Margaret Court Arena. Just like the Australian living legend it is named after, this venue is world class and does Australian tennis proud.Court, formerly Margaret Smith, won 24 Grand Slam singles titles — including 11 in the Open Era. In 1970, she became the first woman in the Open Era to win all four majors in the same calendar year. The only other women to complete the Grand Slam by winning all four majors in a calendar year are Maureen Connolly (1953) and Steffi Graf (1988).Organizers said the retractable roof on the MCA can open in less than five minutes, which is faster than the covers on Rod Laver and Hisense Arena, two other main show courts at Melbourne Park.The design inspiration for the roof was the pleats of a traditional tennis skirt, and the elevated concourse looks back across the Yarra River and the city.Tickets will go on sale for day and night sessions on the MCA for the first eight days of the tournament, which starts Jan. 19.Organizers also announced a 10 per cent increase in total prize money for the players in local currency terms, with the mens and womens champions each earning $3 million Australian dollars ($2.63 million). Lindsey Horan Jersey . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Marc-Andre Fleury, Penguins (3) - Surrendered a tough first goal against on a deflection through the body short side. Meghan Klingenberg Jersey . Five straight losses (and six in the past seven) now dot the schedule – matching their longest skid of the year – after they fell again in New Jersey on Sunday night, topped 3-2 by Cory Schneider and the Devils. http://www.socceruswntshop.com/Sydney-Leroux-Usa-Jersey/ . "Weve given ourselves now a tougher task," said Carlyle after the Friday practice, the Toronto head coach notably chipper and upbeat throughout. "But the bottom line is we just have to win our share of games [and] not worry about what anybody else is doing.LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland - Marcel Hirscher beat Felix Neureuther in a testy Austria vs. Germany duel for the World Cup slalom title on Sunday. Racing last as the controversial first-run leader, Hirscher finished 0.76 seconds inside Neureuthers time to overtake his rival in the standings. Hirscher then circled the finish area in a wide sweep, pounding his chest with his right fist in celebration. Earlier, Austrian and German team bosses had traded barbs before the decisive run over a first-run gate-setting design by one of Hirschers coaches. "At the end, everything is fine," said Hirscher, who added his second straight slalom trophy to the third straight overall title he clinched Saturday. Neureuther said he had been "quite mad" after his first run, but acknowledged Hirscher as a worthy winner. "A very, very tough end," said Neureuther, who was denied his first season-long title. "The last race was maybe the most difficult of the whole year. The best won and it was Marcel." Olympic champion Mario Matt was third, trailing 1.08 behind his Austrian teammates two-run time of 2 minutes, 7.74 seconds. Hirscher had led by 0.06 on the morning course. He raced first on the best snow through a gate-setting by an Austria coach that was branded unfair and ugly by Neureuthers team director, Wolfgang Maier, and ridiculous by American racer Ted Ligety. Austria team director Hans Pum defended its right to set any course within the rules. "I can understand it a bit," said Hirscher, of the anger also expressed by the France team. Megan Rapinoe Jersey. "The course setter will always try to set for his athlete." Still, Hirscher fully earned his third slalom victory this season on a less challenging second-run course set by the Sweden team. Neureuther stood hunched resting on his ski poles in the finish area to watch Hirscher race for the title. They were locked on the same time at the final check point, but Neureuther had lost speed through the last six gates and Hirschers smoother run carried him to a clear winning margin. The new champion first greeted Matt, who beat him to the Olympic title last month, before going to console Neureuther. "Its fine," between us, Neureuther said, "because Marcel wasnt setting the first run today." On Saturday, Neureuther had denied Hirscher the season-long giant slalom title by the minimum 0.01 margin. Then, the Germans third-place finish as the final racer knocked the Austrian down to fourth and into a points tie with Ligety. The American got that title on a tiebreaker — 5-2 on race wins — over Hirscher. Germanys Maier earlier revealed that Austria considered a formal protest Saturday against Neureuthers skis. Had he been disqualified, Hirscher would have taken Ligetys title. "When they win everything, everything is fine," Maier said, describing the Austria team as "the most unfair nation. Always they are finding something to show not really good sportsmanship."
