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.
