Air quality stops match

Play on the third day of the qualifiers for the high profile Australian Open tennis tournament was completely cancelled because of the ‘unhealthy’ quality of the ‘smoke filled’ air caused by the country’s ongoing bushfire crisis.

The danger to players had been highlighted 24 hours earlier when Slovenia’s Dalila Jakupovic had to be helped off the court after retiring from her match with breathing difficulties.



Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, many events have been cancelled or postponed. Please check the event website for further details
