Australian Open draw 2022: Date, time, how to live stream, what women’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 on Monday, January 17, and this coming Thursday brings the official women’s draw for the tournament. The qualifying stage wraps up Thursday morning in Melbourne, which will finalize the full field of women playing in the tournament.

The women/s 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, which will give us a handle on which seeded players have the easier draw, and which will see a seeded player sooner than later.

We still don’t know Naomi Osaka’s official status for the tournament. She withdrew from a warmup tournament earlier this week, dealing with some body shock after her recent break from the game. She has gone on to win Grand Slams after withdrawing from warm-ups, so we’ll wait and see what decision she makes.

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