Australian Open air quality update

  • Tennis Australia

Practice has been suspended until 11am this morning due to air quality concerns, and play won’t start before 1.00pm.

Conditions at Melbourne Park are being constantly monitored and further decisions will be made using the onsite data and in close consultation with our medical team, the Bureau of Meteorology and scientists from EPA Victoria.

The onsite data and measurements early this morning were similar to yesterday, when practice and play were suspended and delayed. Conditions yesterday were forecast to improve throughout the day, which is what occurred.
