Australian Open 2023: When is the draw for grand slam?

The Australian Open is here as the first grand slam of the year takes place in Melbourne.

Emma Raducanu faces a fitness battle to play after being forced to retire at ASB Classic in Auckland after rolling her ankle. The British No 1 hopes to avoid becoming the latest star name already out of the tournament, which includes Naomi Osaka, Carlos Alcaraz and Venus Williams.

There will be a new women’s champion after Ashleigh Barty, who defeated Danielle Collins last year, made the surprise move to retire. There could be another famous chapter between defending champion Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic, who is back after being deported last year over his Covid vaccine status, is in fine form after winning the Adelaide International.

Rafael Nadal fought back from two sets down to defeat Daniil Medvedev and win his 21st grand slam title.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Australian Open.

The draw will work in a traditional format: Unseeded players will be allocated across the bracket before the two top-ranked players begin at each end to ensure a potential final.

The remaining seeded players are then drawn randomly drawn from a pot, with seeded players avoiding each other until the third round.
