Nadal to miss Queen's in order to rest before Wimbledon
Rafael Nadal withdrew from the Aegon Championships at Queen's, insisting he has been told to rest ahead of Wimbledon . As I said before, the French Open is the most important tournament of the year.

The week's hot temperatures are expected to drive up people's use of air conditioners, which can strain the power grid.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures are expected to rise to more than 100 degrees in the Santa Clarita Valley, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

To conserve electricity during the late afternoon "when air conditioners are typically in peak use", consumers are asked to turn off all unnecessary lights, not use major appliances between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. and set their air conditioners to 78 degrees or higher. That would be an the highest usage in the state in 10 years. Also, good luck finding an air conditioner repairman. Temperatures generally will decrease over the coming days, dipping to the week's lowest point Friday and Saturday before inching up again starting Sunday. Temperatures could be as high as 110 in some places in Orange and San Diego counties. In communities where they'll slip slightly, they'll be back at Tuesday's levels by Tuesday.
