Australian Open draw 2022: Date, time, how to live stream, what men’s bracket will look like

We break down viewing details for the men’s draw at the 2022 Australian Open.

The 2022 Australian Open gets underway next Monday, January 17, but in the meantime, the formal men’s draw takes place Thursday in Melbourne, Australia. The qualifying rounds are wrapping up to finalize the full field of tennis players. After that, the men’s bracket will be unveiled and we’ll have a slightly better idea of whether or not No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic is actually playing.

The draw will take place on Thursday, and one report has it happening at 3 p.m. local time. That would be 11 p.m. ET in the United States. The tournament website does not include that time as of this article publishing, but it makes sense given that qualifying matches will be wrapping on Thursday before the draw.

The draw will air on the tournament website and also at the Australian Open Facebook page. The full bracket will be unveiled at that point, including which seeded players will potentially face their first seeded opponent in the round of 16 vs. the quarterfinals.

We still don’t know Novak Djokovic’s official status for the tournament. He won an appeal to remain in Australia, but the country’s Immigration Minister retains the power to deport him and is still considering the possibility.

In the meantime, here are the 32 seeded players for the men’s tournament, along with their odds to win at DraftKings Sportsbook.
