Australian Open 2018: Bracket, schedule, and results for men's draw





Can Federer make it 20 Grand Slam singles titles?

The first Grand Slam of 2018 is here with the Australian Open from Melbourne. The men’s bracket is without a couple big names, but defending-champion Roger Federer and runner-up Rafael Nadal will both be participating, as will a slew of other big names.


For coverage in the United States, we have a detailed list of television and live streaming broadcast times listed below. The tournament will primarily be carried by ESPN and ESPN2 in the US with live streaming via WatchESPN. See below for more details.


Federer, 36, has 19 Grand Slam singles titles, including two from last year — the Australian Open and Wimbledon. He’s going for 20, which isn’t a mark he needs to hit to cement his legacy as the greatest of all time when it comes to men’s singles, but he definitely wants it. Last year saw Federer miss plenty of time, including voluntarily skipping the French Open to focus on the grass courts later in the year.


He’s slowing down, but not enough to expect him eliminated at any point before the semifinals. He has a tougher half and quarter than Nadal does, with Juan Martin Del Potro and David Goffin in his quarter. It will be an interesting middle portion of the tournament for sure.


Andy Murray and Kei Nishikori are the big names not participating, but in addition to Federer, Nadal, Del Potro an Goffin, the men’s field includes Grigor Dimitrov, Nick Kyrgios, Stan Wawrinka, Marin Cilic, John Isner, and Novak Djokovic.


Below is a full bracket, schedule, and results, which will be updated daily throughout the tournament.

Viewing information


The schedule for the Australian Open is nearly identical to how it has been in recent years. For those in the United States, it can be a tricky major to follow with matches beginning late in the evening and running until the morning of the following day. Unless stated otherwise, times ascribed to dates in the evening which end in the morning are ending the following day.


Through the first three rounds, play will begin around 7 p.m. ET on one day and will end around 7 a.m. the following day. “Monday” at the Australian Open is Monday proper for those in Melbourne, but begins on Sunday evening for those in the United States, with play wrapping up on Monday morning.


ESPN will handle television coverage of the tournament between its flagship network and ESPN2, and live streams of all men’s and women’s singles matches will be available live via WatchESPN. Play on most days will begin around 7 p.m. on the Tennis Channel before shifting to ESPN 2. Below is the full schedule for the tournament.
