Aus Open draw comes out a day before tournament?? wtf

I don't remember this happening in grand slam events, aren't draws supposed to be done days in advance?

According to Ausopen.org:

The Main Draw will be released on Sunday 15 January and play begins Monday 16 January, 2006.

There's something very strange going on with this slam, even the qualifying won't START until 4 days before the tournament.

I think they're probably referring to the full main draw, with the qualifiers placed. I heard that the main draw without the qualifiers will be released on Friday.

Please, start more threads about the AO draw. All of these questions were discussed in the other thread, and its only a few hours old.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
