Medvedev:"If I Die Who Will Take Responsibilty?".

Why is Medvedev getting agitated at the umpire? Umpire simply asked him if he was okay. This whiny soft malcontent then goes on a rant about whether umpire will take responsibility if he dies. What the hell does the poor umpire have to do with any of this?
Acting out in this way may very well be related to the fact that Russia was not supposed to have any athletes at the games. So he is building up to tank out of the games, if he hasnt already lost.

It is in the 90s at the Atlanta Open with 51% humidity, and I don't see nearly the same amount of shouting about it on court.

I really think there must be something wrong with the stadium design.

No way he wants out. Medvedev is the biggest threat to Djoker.

86 degrees and 60% humidity. How do those numbers change when the roof is closed? Is that an option?

From Osaka to That Gymnast chick to, Tsitsipas to Med... SOFT!!! Jesus you got a 34 year old dealing with it fine. And he has 20000000000 more miles on his body than you buffoons. Man up clowns. This generation is worthless in every sport. Wish us older folk would have gotten the opportunity to be raised in such a wussified Snowflake era where everyone gets a "participation trophy" And if we decide not to show up to work because of a hangnail or "stress" we still get paid. Man up, get in shape and keep your head together. Jeesh. You're getting paid good money just to play sports. You should ALWAYS be in shape.

A pro player should NEVER be out of shape because they get paid to be in shape. What a joke

Nole has complained too, and soft is not the first word that comes in mind.

They are now starting the tennis at three in the afternoon, so that should appease the players somewhat.
Have any young fit pro tennis players ever died from the heat? We are not aware of any.
In this case we are dealing with 86 degrees and 60% humidity. Heat index of 99. Uncomfortable but not all that extreme. Melbourne has been worse.
What does your research show?

I am currently residing in a climate slightly hotter and more humid than that in summer. The courts are all completely deserted in the middle of the day. Some will even let you play for a token fee.

The Miami Masters is in Spring and not summer, however, and there is probably a climatic reason for that.
Don't disagree, but of course the rest of the Florida world plays tennis year-round. Come and enjoy the season between May and October. I'm sure Medvedev would love it.

What's the DEW POINT? Relative humidity is fairly worthless alone.
The temperature and relative humidity is all that is required to calculated the Heat Index.
Take 60% relative humidity and 86 degrees to see whether Medvedev's life is in danger. It falls within the Cautionary Zone. Not even close to the danger zone.

It is all about the Heat Index.

I am simply seeking humidity measure.

Dew Point isn't necessary.

What is the heat index?

"It's not the heat, it's the humidity". That's a partly valid phrase you may have heard in the summer, but it's actually both. The heat index, also known as the apparent temperature, is what the temperature feels like to the human body when relative humidity is combined with the air temperature. This has important considerations for the human body's comfort.

When the body gets too hot, it begins to perspire or sweat to cool itself off. If the perspiration is not able to evaporate, the body cannot regulate its temperature. Evaporation is a cooling process. When perspiration is evaporated off the body, it effectively reduces the body's temperature. When the atmospheric moisture content (i.e. relative humidity) is high, the rate of evaporation from the body decreases. In other words, the human body feels warmer in humid conditions.

The opposite is true when the relative humidity decreases because the rate of perspiration increases. The body actually feels cooler in arid conditions. There is direct relationship between the air temperature and relative humidity and the heat index, meaning as the air temperature and relative humidity increase (decrease), the heat index increases (decreases).

In order to determine the heat index using the chart above, you need to know the air temperature and the relative humidity. For example, if the air temperature is 100°F and the relative humidity is 55%, the heat index will be 124°F. When the relative humidity is low, the apparent temperature can actually be lower than the air temperature. For example, if the air temperature is 100°F and the relative humidity is 15%, the heat index is 96°F (use this calculator). In the Panhandles, we commonly see hot temperatures during the summer, but the low relative humidity values make it somewhat unusual to see dangerous heat index values (i.e. 103°F or greater). A full heat index chart for a larger range of temperatures and relative humidity values can be found at this link.

We already know the 86 degree air temperature and the relative humidity of 60%.

The Heat Index chart uses just these two values to determine the life danger to Medvedev.

Dew Point is not relevant if you know the air temperature and humidity.

But if you are fixated on Dew Point it can be derived from the 86 degree temperature and relative humidity of 60%.

The Dew Point temperature is 70.5 degrees.

Humidity is crazy high. It's not just hot.
Yeah, where I live it's regularly about 30-36C with humidity ranging between 80% on a good day, and low 90s the rest of the time. It's manageable at night, but when the sun is out it's brutal (even if the actual temps are lower).

I'll take 34C at 93% humidity at night over 32C at 80% humidity at noon any day.

Air conditioning is on 24/7

European and American expats have difficulty handling the climate caused by perpetual air conditioning here (even the underground / subway stations are often aggressively air conditioned).

I usually go to bed with the a/c on at 22-24C set on a three hour timer.

The dehumidifier I have in one room 24/7 usually says the indoor humidity is 55-60% when it's not raining outside.

When it's raining (which can be for weeks on end), I swear you can see the walls of my house sweating.

If you'd prefer the outdoors, be my guest haha

Most people quickly learn to appreciate the air conditioned indoors. I imagine if you worked in a densely populated city you'd be used to an environment like that, tbh. When I lived in London plenty of places were air conditioned, just not as aggressively relative to outdoor temps. Office workers in Canary Wharf for instance would be quite accustomed to 24/7 a/c.

Extremely doubtful that you have temps that high with relative humidity that high. Relative humidity drops as temperature rises because the air is hotter. It's not a good measure because it isn't consistent across temperatures. 80% humidity at 70F happens often and is very wet. 80% humidity at 90F is getting close to death territory.

The measure people should use is dew point. It remains stable across temps. A dew point below 60F is pretty dry. 60-70 humid. 70-80 extremely humid. 80+ horrific

Dew Point is a temperature and it is calculated based on air temperature and relative humidity .

Tokyo air temp was 86 degrees.Tokyo relative humidity was 60%.
From these two readings the Dew Point is calculated as 70.5 degrees.

What does "Dew Point remains stable across temps" mean?

Mask makes your breathing little bit more difficult, which is slowly amounting to long term damage. Masks also make you build up co2, especially if you're doing something physical. Masks are messing with your mouth bacteria. Wearing one in the heat is nothing short of bonkers. There are studies and studies and studies which confirm that.
LOL.

Relative humidity doesn't tell how humid it is without more information and an extra calculation. Dew point instantly tells you. Relative humidity means nothing without knowing the exact temperature.

Right ... so where we started, with you implying that it was stupid for Medvedev to wear a mask if he is worried about getting oxygen.
I get it you're the smart one who has done his own research (read something that was pushed to him on facebook because its algorithm knows he likes conspiracy crap) and figured it all out, and we are all the sheep for paying attention to recognised experts in the field (rather than Dave on the Internet with his evidence-free blog) but I show you a video that demonstrates that this is patently false. There are very many videos just like it.

You can prove this for yourself with a mask and an SpO2 meter. I have done. Mask wearing does not affect SpO2.

And in response you post some garbage poster that contains one, out of context quote, from a Preliminary report that purports to reveal a decrease in SpO2 ... DURING MAJOR SURGERY!! i.e. Wearing a mask for hours .... as opposed to a real world use case of wearing a mask for a few minutes while you are on public transport, in a shop, getting your hair cut, changing at the gym ....

Along with the ground breaking news that surgical masks are better than cloth masks and cloth masks pose a health risk if you don't wash them. Who knew ....

Whether you think masks offer any protection from COVID infection or not, wearing one for a short period of time does not reduce your SpO2. Stating otherwise is a lie.

Have no Facebook for more than 10 years, first and foremost. Or Twitter.

You're maybe not going to get low oxygen saturation because of short mask use or even after a couple of hours. However, your breathing is more laborsome than it would be without it, which is bad for you in the long run (like after year and a half of the fake pandemic). Breathing should be unobstructed. Also, you're definitely breathing in toxic levels of co2 with a mask on, even with the most simple ones.

There is not a single example of covid cases going down after mask mandates. However, there are countless examples of covid cases shooting through the roof after mask mandates. So masks are useless at best and dangerous at worst (not least for the visual terror they are spreading among people).

And yeah, Daniil's going to be fine, mask or no mask. He didn't even put the damn thing over his nose.

Even if this were true (it's not), laborsome breathing every so often would be good for you. Tone up your diaphragm muscles. There are several pieces of exercise equipment like PowerBreathe designed to improve your fitness in this way by making it harder to breathe therefore working your diaphragm and intercostal muscles harder.

Also, you're definitely breathing in toxic levels of co2 with a mask on, even with the most simple ones.
Masks do not change the composition of the earth's atmosphere. CO2 molecules are about 1000x smaller than a coronavirus. So yes it is relatively simple to build a mask that can block the virus but allow oxygen to enter unobstructed and CO2 to exit unobstructed.

There is not a single example of covid cases going down after mask mandates. However, there are countless examples of covid cases shooting through the roof after mask mandates.
LOL!! Mask mandate and lockdowns happen when the infection rates are going up rapidly. That's the whole reason why special measures are brought in!! You expect the rates to fall immediately? It takes weeks to flatten the curve from that point. How you can isolate mask-wearing from lockdown and vaccination programmes that all have an impact on infection rates is beyond me. But it is no coincidence that cultures with a mask-wearing culture in the winter season have the lowest rates of coronavirus in the world:

Deaths per million population:
Japan: 120
South Korea: 41
USA: 1886
UK: 1897

So masks are useless at best and dangerous at worst (not least for the visual terror they are spreading among people the feeble minded).
Are you freaked out by your dentist? Surgeon? Painter and decorator? Carpenter? If the sight of a person with a mask on is "visual terror" for you, seek help!!
