Dalila Jakupovic

Slovenian tennis player Dalila Jakupovic was forced to abandon her Australian Open qualifying match in Melbourne, Australia, after she broke into a coughing fit caused by poor air quality in the city.
On Tuesday, the air quality in parts of Melbourne reached hazardous levels, due to smoke from nearby bushfires, which have plagued the country for months.
The smoke was so bad that the Australian Open qualifying matches were delayed on Tuesday afternoon due to dangerous air, but resumed shortly after.
Officials have said this bushfire season is likely to be the worst on record, as millions of acres of land have already been razed.
At least 28 people have been killed since the season started in September, and over 1 billion animals are estimated to have died.
