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


The first grand slam tennis tournament of the year, the Australian Open, begins on Monday, Jan. 17.

The tournament has made headlines the last few months after announcing players would be required to be vaccinated. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who is unvaccinated, ultimately was deported and won’t compete after going through multiple appeals with the Australian immigration office after his visa was declined.

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

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

Australian Open 2022 schedule

The Australian Open can be viewed on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN+ and the Tennis Channel for American audiences. Melbourne, where the tournament is held, is 16 hours ahead of eastern time, so most of the coverage will be replays of earlier matches. The live matches will be broadcast throughout the night and into the early morning.

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

Along with ESPN’s streaming app ESPN+, viewers can also watch the Australian Open tennis matches live with fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
