Once upon a time they called it the Happy Slam, but Novak Djokovic’s scrape with the Aussie authorities has injected a feverish blaze into proceedings. The squabbling will of course be administered with a healthy dose of world class tennis, possibly some of it from the hand of the man himself. Read on as we explain how to watch an Australian Open live stream from anywhere – including ways to watch the tennis absolutely FREE.

The only shot Nole is interested in is the chance to become the outright most successful men’s player in the history of the game and that’s down to the Aussie authorities right now. The world No.1, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have each won 20 slams, and if the Serb escapes the clutches of Scott Morrison, few would bet against him Down Under.

It seems an age has passed since Naomi Osaka lifted the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup. The Japanese star’s relationship with the sport has changed enormously over the past 12 months, which presents Ashleigh Barty with possibly her best ever opportunity to win her home slam for the first time or can Britain’s Emma Raducanu work her magic once more?

The Melbourne crowd is always on top form. Even at 50 percent capacity the atmosphere will be rocking. Here’s how you can live stream Australian Open 2022 tennis from wherever you are in the world.

But if you try to watch your domestic coverage from anywhere outside your home country, you’ll soon find a problem – geo-blocking. That’s where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It’s a common problem for sports fans all over the world. 

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back at home.

Australian Open draw 2022

The big news in the women’s singles is that top seed Ash Barty could face reigning champion Naomi Osaka before we even get to the quarter-finals. They’re on the same side of the draw as French Open champ Barbora Krejcikova, Olympic gold medallist Belinda Bencic, 2020 AO champion Sofia Kenin, and No.5 seed Maria Sakkari.

2020 finalist and No.3 seed Garbine Muguruza has a tough route to the final, with Simona Halep, Emma Raducanu and No.2 seed Aryna Sabalenka potentially standing in her way, while an early meeting between US Open finalist Leylah Fernandez and 2016 champ Angelique Kerber could be on the cards, and 2020 French Open winner Iga Swiatek may face 2019 AO finalist Petra Kvitova.

In the men’s draw, an Aussie Open final showdown between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will not happen as they’re on the same side of the draw, along with Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini, Olympic gold medallist Alexander Zverev, and rising star Denis Shapovalov.

US Open champ Daniil Medvedev and fellow fiery Russian Andrey Rublev are on the same side of the draw, which is stacked with big talent and personalities. Medvedev may have an early clash with Nick Kyrgios, who’ll be sure to whip the crowd into a frenzy, while the other major names include Diego Schwartzman, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Jannik Sinner, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Casper Ruud and Andy Murray.
