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.
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.

Why the rush. Why risk the players health. This is not heat, players can't prepare for breathing in this filth. What a stupid call.

Hahah I was wondering if Tomic was trying to qualify or if he had just thrown in the towel.
Tomic is going to hate playing in these conditions


Anyway ao organisers need to be mindful of the air quality report instead of putting players, officials, ball kids and spectators at risk

De minaur in doubt due to an abdominal injury.


It was a mistake to play him in the singles and doubles on the same day against team gb.
Yep, it wasn't nessecary to over play him.

Jakupovic retired while leading 6-4 5-6 Ad so it wasn't like a player used it as an excuse for losing either.

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.

Exactly , the organisers wouldn't allow a big name player to play in these conditions.


Poor form by the organisers.

Not sure why they pushed through. They have enough courts to still complete in three days or worst case Saturday.
I don't understand why they dont use the indoor courts


Anyway it's disappointing they dont listen to authorities about air quality and health concerns

sounds like they have. No play before Noon but they also delayed the start of the quallies yesterday. They still went out when they shouldn't.


Oh boy, that is a worry.
Australian Open organisers have a lot to answer. Tennis world is not happy with their decision.
