Hope the ao gets thrown into the lions for this call. What a terrible call to play today. They have plenty of time to finish quallies and the smoke is meant to clear by tomorrow.At least one player has had to retire mid match during qualies today due to suffering a respiratory attack. Interesting decision to go ahead with qualies outdoors today.
Tomic is going to hate playing in these conditionsHahah I was wondering if Tomic was trying to qualify or if he had just thrown in the towel.
Yep, it wasn't nessecary to over play him.De minaur in doubt due to an abdominal injury.

Jakupovic retired while leading 6-4 5-6 Ad so it wasn't like a player used it as an excuse for losing either.At least one player has had to retire mid match during qualies today due to suffering a respiratory attack. Interesting decision to go ahead with qualies outdoors today.
how can they say that.Tennis Australia is holding firm on its hazardous air quality policy as bushfire smoke interrupted the first day of Australian Open qualifiers and day one of the Kooyong Classic, with one player collapsing and many others treated.www.theage.com.au
Exactly , the organisers wouldn't allow a big name player to play in these conditions.how can they say that.
Lets be honest, if this was the main draw and Fed, Rafa or Serena were somehow on an outside court, they would have stopped play. When the city is telling people not to go outside, perhaps playing tennis is not the smartest thing in the world.
