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.

I don't get this either. The draw at GS events is usually released a few days in advance of the beginning of the tournament. Not sure why they're waiting till Sunday.

from the official site:

The Main Draw will be released on Friday 13 January and play begins Monday 16 January, 2006. The Australian Open Website will have full draw sheets from the five main draw tournaments, the four junior tournaments and the wheelchair Classic 8s. These pages display completed match scores and the progression of the players in each event (Men's Singles, Women's Singles, etc.) and allow you to view the next and previous round match-ups (where available).
