Melbourne smoke causes Slovenian tennis player Dalila Jakupovic’s coughing fit

Melbourne

Tha'ts why I went on the floor (of the court) because I couldn't walk any more.

"During the period of when we suspended practice and restarted the matches there was an improvement in the conditions", Tiley said before Jakupovic's retirement.

Melburnians took to Twitter to share photos of the thick smoke, but also to prove they haven't lost their sense of humour.

Suffering from a rib injury, the 20 year-old young gun told reporters on Monday evening that he will undergo daily medical treatment in the hopes of being ready for the Grand Slam tournament.

Qualifying rounds for the Australian Open were delayed Wednesday as toxic smoke from widespread bushfires continued to choke Melbourne, throwing the Grand Slam's schedule into chaos. However, a charity event to raise funds to battle the bushfires - that featured top players like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Serena Williams among others - was held despite the concerns over air quality.

Speaking to the Indian Express earlier, Nagal had said he had "never seen anything like this in the four times I've been here".

Victoria's Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton told local media the air quality in Melbourne had been the "worst in the world" overnight.

The decision to play in the smoky conditions was criticized by fans and players, who lambasted the tournament bosses for putting the players' health at risk. "We are all pissed and a bit disappointed because we thought they would take better care of us".

Those victories meant he became the first manager to win away at both Real Madrid and Barcelona in the same season since 2003. Bartomeu said: "We all know Setien is a huge fan of Johan Cruyff's style and we share the same objectives".

"I was really scared that I would collapse", Jakupovic said.

Roger Federer has praised Australians for being a "true inspiration" after the Open's Rally for Relief charity match raised almost $5million for bushfire victims.

The 20-time grand-slam victor had also dipped into his own pocket, combining with Nadal to make a $250,000 donation, with fundraising efforts to continue during the Australian Open. Australian men's player Bernard Tomic complained of getting exhausted easily and breathing difficulty.

Australian Bernard Tomic was also affected by the smoke as he called a medical timeout due to breathing difficulties before being eliminated by American Denis Kudla.

The decision to suspend the action was heavily criticized when the players were hit by unsafe conditions after being allowed to play on Tuesday.

"It's not healthy for us", she added.

An exhibition match involving former world number one Maria Sharapova was also called off because of the smoke.
