They're going to need to scramble to fill spots in qualies but I imagine locals and doubles players wouldn't complain about some extra prize money.
Not really. Decent players like Kalinskaya, Niculescu, McNally, Doleheide, Arruabarrena, García Pérez, Krunic, Muhammad...are in Melbourne for the AO doubles (as well as all the AO LL) so they can sign up as on-site alternates here.

Good chance for Andreea Mitu to rebuild her singles carrer. She should be in the MD soon having a singles ranking of 526 :) Good luck to Jurak,Dabrovski too !

Craig Tiley, head of Tennis Australia, has hinted at cutting down the pre-AO tournaments due to the lack of training time that players have had due to the hard lockdowns. I'm going to assume that players have begun unofficially withdrawing from these two Melbourne events.

There will be others in her position too. I suspect they’ll have to WD if they don’t want to play

What others? The only one I can think of is Ann Li if she flew from LA, but no one else.

Btw, is Badosa send home or can spend 14 days in isolation in Australia?
This from the Vic CHO this morning:
She will have to isolate for 10 days if it is considered a standard case, or 14 days if it is the UK variant, which will put her chances of competing at risk.

Even with 10 days it is very close but Tennis Australia is possibly working on something ...
