They had also planned to move all of the buildup tournaments to Victoria, but the state government gave that notion short-shrift and said they had not even confirmed whether the Grand Slam could go ahead.

Andrews reportedly only wants players to arrive from early January, which would make it all but impossible to hold the high-profile ATP Cup and other tournaments before the scheduled start of the Open on 18 January.

Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley on Sunday released a statement saying they were "doing everything we can to finalise the summer of tennis as soon as possible".

'We are working closely with the Victorian Government on a plan that takes into account the needs of the players, fans, our partners and staff, and is of major benefit to the Victorian and Australian economies.

Tennis Australia (TA) dismissed on Saturday media reports claiming the start of the Australian Open is set to be pushed back from January to February or March next year due to Covid-19 protocols in the country.

'We are continuing our urgent talks with local health authorities regarding quarantining and bio-security requirements and are confident we will have decisions soon'.

Tiley said TA is acutely aware of the need for certainty but also of reaching a solution with the state government that ensures the safety of the entire community.

We look forward to announcing our ticket on-sale date as soon as all arrangements with the relevant authorities are finalized and we have more information on crowd sizes. "That's a lot, I think even 10% would be huge for us at this stage", Djokovic said after moving into the semis of the ATP Finals in London.

"Strange is probably the right word to describe the season, but nevertheless I still feel like we played a lot of tournaments considering we had a six-months gap in the middle of the season", he added.
