EFEMelbourne, Australia

The main draw for the Australian Open was published on Wednesday, showing Serbian Novak Djokovic as men's headliner, and Japan's Naomi Osaka in the women's list of players for the first Grand Slam of the season.

Djokovic's name appears after months of speculation over whether he would play Down Under. The tournament requires proof of vaccination against Covid-19, and Djokovic has repeatedly refused to publicly reveal his vaccination status.
