Namely, the organizers are in trouble after one of the key people, the biosafety manager of "Tennis Australia", Tom McDowell, resigned.

"A tough development for the Australian Open amid the pandemic: Tennis Australia's biosafety manager Tom McDowell has just resigned, leaving the organization just as players and their teams begin to arrive," tennis journalist Ben Rothenberg said.

McDowell withdrew at a time when it was very important to do most of the work, as well as cooperation with the authorities and officials.
