The Australian Open is facing yet another major disruption according to reports, with the owners of 36 penthouse apartments in the hotel set to house hundreds of tennis players threatening to launch a legal challenge.

The Westin Melbourne has been selected to host the majority of players arriving internationally for the two-week quarantine period, with the first expected to arrive on January 15th, ahead of the rescheduled February 8th start date.

But according to The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald, the apartment owners, many of whom live permanently in the hotel, have claimed they were not properly consulted about the plans from Tennis Australia by the hotel and are considering a last-minute injunction to the Supreme Court over the health risk it poses to them and the community.
