Novak Djokovic has dominated the headlines in the build-up to the Australian Open 2022, which runs from 17–30 January.

The men’s No 1 player has had an order for deportation quashed on appeal and has resumed practice at Melbourne Park, and barring any further twists and turns, Djokovic will begin his title defence next week as the No 1 seed.

Nonetheless the tournament is wide open even though Djokovic, the nine-time winner aiming to break a three-way tie with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on 20 Grand Slams, is the favourite.

With Roger Federer out injured, Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Nadal will be fancied to push the Serbian close. Andy Murray is a wildcard for the tournament, two years on from seemingly his last appearance in a Grand Slam, while Stan Wawrinka, Dominic Thiem, Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikori have not travelled.

Defending champion Naomi Osaka back at a Grand Slam after her victory last year over Jennifer Brady. While Emma Raducanu has endured a tough build-up after a heavy loss to world number 13 Elena Rybakina, picking up just one game in the Sydney International. Here’s everything you need to know about the draw:
