The 34-year-old has been drawn against fellow Serb Miomir Kecmanovic.
Britain’s US Open champion Emma Raducanu, seeded 17th, faces American world number 68 Sloane Stephens, the 2017 champion at the New York major.
The Australian Open is the first Grand Slam of the 2022 season and starts at Melbourne Park on Monday.
The draw was originally supposed to be announced at 3pm local time (04:00 GMT) on Thursday but was delayed by one hour and 15 minutes.
