Australian Open 2022 schedule: full draws, TV coverage, channels and more to watch every tennis match

The first Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year, the Australian Open, begins on Monday, January 17.

The tournament has made headlines in recent months after it was announced that players would have to be vaccinated. World number one Novak Djokovic, who is not vaccinated, was eventually deported and will not compete after making several appeals to the Australian immigration office after his visa was refused.

Djokovic, who has won this tournament nine times, is the defending men’s singles champion, with Naomi Osaka the defending women’s singles champion.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Australian Open 2022, including a full TV schedule, full draw, betting odds and matches playing today.

The Australian Open can be viewed on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN+ and Tennis Channel for US audiences and on TSN in Canada. Melbourne, where the tournament is taking place, is 16 hours ahead of Eastern time, so most of the coverage will be replays of previous matches. Live matches will be broadcast all night and until the early hours.

The men’s singles and women’s singles finals will be broadcast on ESPN.
