Novak Djokovic was the three-time defending champion, but was unable to compete after his visa was cancelled shortly before the tournament began, due to a personal intervention from Australia's Immigration Minister Alex Hawke, citing risks to the public health and good order in Australia.[1][2]

Rafael Nadal will be attempting to win an outright record 21st major singles title and surpass a joint-record he holds with Djokovic and Roger Federer.[3]

Nadal is the only former champion left in both the main draw of the Men's and Women's Singles, and he is also vying to become the second male player in the Open Era, after Djokovic, to win all singles majors at least twice.

With Djokovic being unable to defend his points, both Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev were in contention to clinch the ATP singles No. 1 ranking on 21 February by winning the title.[4] However, Zverev lost in the fourth round to Denis Shapovalov.

By beating Pablo Carreño Busta in the fourth round, Matteo Berrettini became the first male player born in the 1990s to get to the quarterfinals or further in all four Grand Slams.[5]

Djokovic visa controversy[edit]

Djokovic lost his ability to compete when his visa to enter Australia was cancelled. Despite being granted a medical exemption to the tournament's COVID-19 vaccine requirement by Tennis Australia,[6][7] the Australian Border Force confirmed that after being detained at Melbourne Airport for eight hours, Djokovic's visa had been cancelled and he would be denied entry to the country due to not meeting exemption criteria to Australia's vaccination requirements.[8][9] Djokovic sought an injunction to prevent his deportation.[10][11] The Federal Circuit and Family Court ruled in favour of Djokovic, ordered his release from detention and directed the federal government to pay his legal expenses.[12] On 14 January Minister for Immigration Alex Hawke used his discretionary power to cancel Djokovic's visa on health and good order grounds.[1] Djokovic sought a judicial review against deportation, but three Federal Court of Australia judges unanimously rejected the review on 16 January, preventing him from defending his title.[13]

Seeded players[edit]

The following are the seeded players. Seedings are based on ATP rankings as of 10 January 2022. Rank and points before are as of 17 January 2022.

As a result of pandemic-related adjustments to the ranking system and changes to the ATP Tour calendar in 2020 and 2021, players will have the following potential adjustments to their ranking points after the tournament:

  • Players who are defending points from the 2020 tournament in which are higher will be dropped on 31 January 2022; those points will be replaced by the higher of their points from 2021 or 2022 (points from 2021 will still be valid at the end of the 2022 tournament because the 2021 tournament delayed to three weeks in the normal scheduled calendar year; both 2020 and 2021 points are equaled within the same result will also be dropped on 21 February 2022).
  • Players who are defending points from the 2021 tournament will have those points replaced by 2022 points only if the latter are higher.
  • Players who have points from the 2021 tournament still counting towards their ranking on 31 January 2022 will have those points dropped on 21 February 2022 (52 weeks after the 2021 tournament); any 2021 points will be replaced by 2022 points at that time.[14]
  • Players who are not defending points from either the 2020 or 2021 tournaments will have their 19th best result replaced by their points from the 2022 tournament.

Note that this is a different ranking adjustment system than the one being used by the WTA for the women's event.
