Many parts of Australia have been experiencing horrendous air quality due to those deadly wildfires.  Does tennis have any plans to protect the health of their players or are they waiting for players to collapse on court before announcing a plan?

You already know they will make sure Roger is as comfortable as possible and that's it!

I love how Tennis Australia is posting these propaganda photos of a select group of players sunning themselves on a beach while pretty much the entire west coast of the country is in flames. Clueless.

Tennis still doesn't know how to present itself as a sport. The first match being broadcast to an audience in the inaugural year of a brand-new event and this is how they do it??? I don't always agree with Ben but he does have a point here.

The tournament that was meant to have been played in. Canberra has been moved to Bendigo in Victoria.

It is the east coast that is pretty much in flames. We really need the rain to assist the firefighters.

Since I posted this, I've seen a map of Australia and the fire was more expansive than I had read.  There were balls of fire dotted in more than one area.  Very scary.

 

I really hope the rain comes to help the firefighters and everybody in putting out the fire.

 

I saw that Tennis Australia followed Nick Kyrgios' lead in raising money for those in need due to the fires.   

 

Do you think that the air quality issues will spread to other parts of Australia?  I read that people in New Zealand are being affected.

I have rain here at the moment but it really needs to go a lot further east. 
 
There are now more tennis players following Nik’s pledge as well as cricketers and basket ballers. 
 

Yes the smoke haze went all the way to New Zealand, and will spread to other parts of Australia, but I think this will depend on the speed and direction of the winds.

Hope you and your family are staying safe and are out of any direct danger.

 

I'm on the beach in Sydney and it's been unbearably hot here the past few weeks. The wind, air quality, and smoke are of course horrendous. How are the conditions where you are?

I am in Melbourne, we are only getting smoke haze, but there are times I can smell the fire. Did see a Kangaroo around the corner from where I live, and I am only a 20 minute train trip from the city.

The air quality is very bad in Melbourne today. If it is like this when the tennis is on they will not play on any of the courts, and I think the same would be for the ones that have roofs. This is the view of the Tennis centre today. Sorry that photo is upside down, up it is right in my photos lol.image.jpg
