Tennis Australia chief Craig Tiley opens up on the event
"For a period of about two-and-a-half hours we're going to be showcasing the game, but also coming together as a community to play our part in the relief effort," said Tennis Australia chief Craig Tiley.
Many athletes have pledged support
The devastation has seen a host of athletes pledge money.
However, Tiley said it was unlikely this will happen.
"All the information we have at the moment, with qualifying coming up next week, is that the forecast is good, we don't expect any delays and we've implemented additional measures to ensure the Australian Open will be able to run as scheduled," he said.
What do we know about the Australian bushfires?
Australia saw dozens of fires erupting in New South Wales in November and things rapidly spread across the entire continent to become some of the most devastating on record.
An area, roughly 15 million acres, has burned already. More than 1,000 houses have been destroyed by the fire.
People were forced to evacuate their houses.
It is a countrywide catastrophe.
Police in Australia have accused people of deliberately setting bushfires
Meanwhile, police have charged at least 24 people for intentionally starting bushfires in the state of New South Wales, according to a statement the New South Wales Police released on Monday.
NSW Police have taken legal action against 183 people, 40 of whom are juveniles, for fire-related offenses since November 8.
The legal actions range from cautions to criminal charges.
