ice bath. Miles had to take getting squirted with cold water. Thanks a lot to Pizza Express Wimby Village for firing up their ovens after they shut last night just for me. Really kind. Among todays Centre Court fans was Russian Vasilisa Alexander, the 19-year-old Murray fan from Moscow, who finally got her prize ticket to watch the quarter-final after waiting at the very front of the queue since 5.30am on Monday. THREE Wimbledon players are believed to have caught swine flu as more tournament staff suspected to have the virus were told to stay home today. A total of 28 Wimbledon workers have now reported flu- like symptoms. The players affected are world No 29 doubles star Michal Mertinak and world No 22 Filip Polasek, both Slovakian, and American Travis Parrott. Mertinak, 29, and Polasek, 24, shared a hotel room while Parrott, 28, was Polaseks doubles partner. All three went out of the tournament last week. Three out of four ballboys and girls sent home earlier this week with symptoms are now back on court. The latest staff to be sent home include workers in the shop, catering department and broadcast centre. London Lite Wednesday, 1 July 2009 andy says hes got no problems with the centre court 43ctubeisworse than cattle trucks ANDY MuRRAY insisted he loves playing under Wimbledons new Centre Court roof as he prepared for todays quarter-final clash. The British number one had criticised Wimbledon officials for not giving him enough notice that he would be playing under cover in his previous match on Monday evening and branded the condi- tions on court as humid and slow. But now Murray has written on his Twitter page: See you all tomorrow. One last thing... I loved playing under the roof even if youve read different! The atmosphere was amazing, just very humid. Bedtime for me. Murray was scheduled to play Juan Carlos Ferrero at about 3.30pm this afternoon, depending on when the ear- lier Centre Court clash between Roger Feder and Ivo Karlovic was decided. Meanwhile, an expert has agreed with Murray about the humid condi- tions under the roof. After his five-set thriller against Switzerlands Stanislas Wawrinka on Monday, Murray said he struggled in the very, very heavy and very humid atmosphere. The air inside Centre Court was 24C, far cooler than the 31C outside. But Steve Haake of Sheffield Hallam university, said Murray was right that hed been sweating more than usual. The sports expert said: When you play outside, there is usually a breeze of some sort. That wind chill factor helps sweat evaporate. You dont get that in a controlled environment where air isnt moving and sweat has nowhere to go. Murray added on his Twitter page he had put in a lot of recovery work since Monday, while coach Miles Maclagan had to put up with being squirted with cold water in more forfeit high jinks. Murray also revealed Pizza Express in Wimbledon Village opened up especially for him after his marathon match on Monday. He wrote: Whats up? Got some solid recovery in today. Food, fluids, massage, SWELTERING Tube commuters are feeling the heat at up to 43C -- or 109F. And its set to get even stickier, as the Met Office today upgraded the heatwave alert to level 3. Street temperatures are expected to reach 32C. The Tube conditions are far worse than those allowed for transporting cattle, where the legal limit is 27C. The actual peak on the Tube is 34C, but carriage humidity raises apparent temperature felt by passengers far higher. On the network yesterday the Northern line City branch was the worst at 33.8C. The Victoria line was almost as bad at 33.7C. by georgina littlejohn Feeling the heat: passengers gulp down water on the Tube 1 The Dave Gorman Podcast (Absolute Radio) 2 Friday Night Comedy (BBC Radio 4) 3 Reith Lectures 2009 (BBC Radio 4) 4 Ricky Gervais Podcast (Ricky Gervais, below) 5 Stephen Frys Podgrams (Stephen Fry) 6 David Mitchells Soap Box ( 7 8 out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4 Radio) 8 Best Of Moyles Enhanced (BBC Radio 1) 9 Ice Age -- Dawn Of The Dinosaurs -- Sneak Peak (Ice Age Dawn Of The Dinosaurs) 10A Point Of View: David Attenboroughs Life Stories (BBC Radio 4) Source: TOP 10 PODCASTS Sound&Lite PoSt yoUr iblog reVieWS at murray: i really do love that roof over wimbers Three tennis stars hit by pig flu outbreak Wimbledon lateSt: PageS 42 & 43 Heat is on: Murraysback on Centre Court today Just the ticket: fan Vasilisa today H H index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html
