The 2024 Australian Open is the gem in the crown of the summer of tennis down under, with all the world’s best players congregating at Melbourne Park for a fortnight of thrills, spills and glory to the victors.

As always, the hometown heroes will be the focus to begin proceedings, with a host of Australians having successfully qualified to the main draw, and with varying chances of making a deep run at the tournament or even taking home the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup or Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup themselves.

Watch every Australian Open match ad-free, live & on demand with centre court in 4K Ultra-HD on the home of Grand Slam tennis, Stan Sport.

Here at The Roar, we’ve got you covered for every Aussie match at the Australian Open this summer: updated daily, we’ll bring you what time their matches start, the court they’re playing on, and their upcoming opponents.

Here is our ultimate guide to watching every Australian match at the 2024 Australian Open.

Day 2 order of play (all times AEDT)

Please note that for the first time, the first round of the 2024 Australian Open will be spread across three days, from Sunday January 14 to Tuesday January 16, to allow organisers breathing space in case of rain or other weather interference.

11am, first match on court: Women’s singles, Storm Hunter (Q) vs Sara Errani (ITA), Kia Arena


11am, first match on court: Women’s singles, Taylah Preston (WC) vs Elina Svitolina (19) (UKR), 1573 Arena

1pm (approx.), second on court: Men’s singles, Alexei Popyrin vs Marc Polmans (WC), John Cain Arena

1pm (approx.), second on court: Men’s singles, James Duckworth (WC) vs Luca Van Assche (FRA), Court 6

3pm (approx.), third on court: Men’s singles, Aleksandar Vukic vs Jordan Thompson, Court 3

3:30pm (approx.), third on court: Women’s singles, Daria Saville (WC) vs Magdalena Frech (POL), John Cain Arena

5pm (approx., earliest start time), fourth on court: Men’s singles, Omar Jasika (Q) vs Hubert Hurkacz (9) (POL), John Cain Arena

5:30pm (approx.), fourth on court: Men’s singles, Rinky Hijikata vs Jan-Lennard Struff (24) (GER), Court 3


7pm (approx.), first match of night session: Men’s singles, Alex de Minaur (10) vs Milos Raonic (CAN), Rod Laver Arena

11 Aussies across nine matches fill a Day 2 packed with home prospects, with the headline act Alex de Minaur’s first-round date with big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic in a blockbuster night session on Rod Laver Arena.

Two ‘Aussie-offs’ will also be must-watch affairs, with Alexei Popyrin and Marc Polmans duking it out as the first leg of an Australian triple-header on John Cain Arena, followed by Daria Saville and Omar Jasika, the latter of whom faces a tough opponent in ninth seed Hubert Hurkacz.

Aleksandar Vukic and Jordan Thompson will also ensure at least one more Australian joins Chris O’Connell in the second round; but come evening, all eyes will be on Rod Laver Arena and the ‘Demon’.

Please note that listed matches’ start times will depend on the length of preceding matches where specified, and are unlikely to start at precisely the slated time.

How to watch Aussies at the Australian Open on TV

As it has been since 2019, the Nine Network are the sole host broadcaster of the 2024 Australian Open.


Beginning from 11am every day, they will show two matches live and free on television – one on their main channel (9 or 90 for HD), and one on secondary channel 9Gem (93 or 95 for HD).

They will run matches on both channels until play ends for the evening, though Channel 9 will break for the news from 6-7pm in every timezone, with tertiary channel 9GO (99) to broadcast in that hour. Please note unlike 9 and 9Gem, there is no high definition channel option for 9GO.

Australians are expected to feature prominently on the coverage in the early rounds, and it’s expected the majority of Aussies will have at least some of their game broadcast on TV.

However, Nine are prone to regularly shifting between games, especially during the afternoon, so there is no guarantee you will be able to watch a full match.

How to live Aussies at the Australian Open on your device of choice

If you can’t get to a TV, or the Aussie you want isn’t being shown, you still have a few options to catch the matches you’re keenest on.

Your best bet is to purchase a Stan Sport subscription.


As it has been for the past three tournaments, Stan, Nine’s partner streaming service, will stream every single Australian Open match – singles, doubles, mixed doubles and all – on their platform.

That means whatever match you fancy is just a click away. Simply head to the link above, sign up, head to the ‘Tennis’ section in the ‘Sport’ sub-category, and find the match you want.

Stan Sport will also provide full match replays for every game, as well as extended and mini highlights packages shortly after they finish, so you don’t need to miss a moment wherever you are.

Please note Stan do not offer Stan Sport as a separate purchase; you will need to buy Stan first, for as little as $10 a month, and then purchase the sport add-on for $15 a month extra. You can then cancel anytime, should you wish to end your subscription straight after the Australian Open ends.


Your second option is Nine’s official streaming platform, 9now.

Like with Stan Sport, every court will be streamed live on 9Now, meaning you can catch any match you want – so long as it’s still going. However, replays will not be available, while there is no rewind option to catch up on all the best moments.
