Tennis player Dalila Jakupovic quits Australian Open after coughing fit in smoke-filled air

A tennis player abandoned an Australian Open qualifying match Tuesday after dropping to her knees in a coughing fit as smoke from the nation’s catastrophic wildfires clogged the air.

“I was really scared that I would collapse,” Slovenian Dalila Jakupovic told The Associated Press. “I never had breathing problems. I actually like heat. But … I just couldn’t breathe anymore and I just fell on the floor.”
