The 2022 Australia Open gets underway Sunday evening and Naomi Osaka kicks off her title defense at 9:30 p.m. ET. She will face Maria Camila Osorio Serrano in the first round in a match set to air on the ESPN family of networks.

ESPN is offering day one coverage starting at 7 p.m. ET. It’s a safe bet Osaka’s opener will get some coverage on the main network. However, whether you’re not in front of your TV or the network considers other matches, you can watch a live stream at WatchESPN or on the ESPN app with a cable subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access either channel for a live stream, you can get a trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to find ESPN.

Osaka withdrew from her semifinal match at the Melbourne Summer Set 1 due to shock to her body. She withdrew from a tune-up match last year before winning the Australian Open, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed she’s healthy enough to remain in this year’s tournament as she advances.

Osaka is a -1100 favorite to win the match at DraftKings Sportsbook while Serrano is +650.
