MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) Tennis Australia is still awaiting confirmation from the Victorian state government on its plans for the Australian Open amid reports that the season-opening major will be delayed by three weeks and not start until Feb. 8.

Melbourne's The Age newspaper and others reported a letter sent by Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley to players which made reference to a Feb. 8 start date. The tournament was scheduled for Jan. 18-31 at Melbourne Park, which is the tournament's regular slot late in the southern summer holidays.
