Tie Break Tens draw done

Stan Wawrinka says he’ll decide after Wednesday night’s Tie Break Tens event in Margaret Court Arena whether he’ll give the Australian Open a go.

And while there are no easy draws in the winner-take-all, knockout exhibition, he didn’t get an easy one in Dominic Thiem in the first round.


The first rounds are as follows: Novak Djokovic vs. Lleyton Hewitt. Rafael Nadal vs. Lucas Pouille, Tomas Berdych vs. Nick Kyrgios, and Wawrinka vs. Thiem.

It’s a 10-point match tiebreak format. So Wawrinka’s stamina won’t be tested.

Three rounds, winner gets all of the $250,000 prize.
