Tennis fans can join in the countdown to Australian Open 2018 and attend the Official Australian Open Live Draw at Margaret Court Arena on Thursday 11 January.

The event will feature a special appearance from defending champion Roger Federer, twelve months after winning his 18th major title against Rafael Nadal at Melbourne Park.

Federer will be joined by 2008 Australian Open champion, and five-time Grand Slam singles champion, Maria Sharapova.

With so many contenders across both sides of the men's and women's singles, it promises to be one of the most anticipated draws in Grand Slam history.

Hosted by Seven’s Hamish McLachlan, the full draw will be revealed and dissected by a panel of tennis experts including Australian tennis legend Todd Woodbridge. 

Fans can attend the event for a gold-coin donation, with proceeds going to the Australian Tennis Foundation. Details are as follows:


Date: Thursday 11 January 2018
Time: 7:00pm (Doors open from 6:15pm)
Venue: Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne Park


The AO Live Draw will be broadcast live on the screens of Seven and live-streamed on ausopen.com.
