Organisers are confident it will go ahead.

Australian Open organisers are "confident" the first Grand Slam of the year will go ahead as planned on Monday, despite 160 players waiting for the results of coronavirus tests.

More than 500 people connected to the tournament were told to isolate by Melbourne health officials yesterday after a hotel worker tested positive.

Play at six warm-up events and the draws were postponed today so the draws will take place tomorrow.

Players will be allowed out of isolation once they return a negative test.
