Tennis: Player forced to retire due to poor air quality at Australian Open qualifiers

Poor air quality forced a player to retire from Australian Open qualifiers in Melbourne. Dalila Jakupovic of Slovenia retired against Switzerland's Stefanie Voegel when the scoreline was 6-5, 5-6. She had to be helped off the court after suffering a coughing fit. Practice sessions at Melbourne Park were delayed due to the polluted air from ongoing brushfires ahead of the Australian Open.
