Same problem here. Though only 1v1 is unavailable to me. I think it might have to do with playing placement matches. I played 1 2v2 placement match, and after that I couldn't play 1v1 any more.

Maybe it's bugged and you have to play all your placement matches or something? That's stupid.

Running the repair tool fixed this for me. You can find it on the "Help" menu in the loader.

Yep, that was my screen shot as well, this MORNING... then I did the repair tool, as suggested... now my 3v3 is UNAVAILABLE as well.... Come to think of it, I did use Alt-Tab to go out to the main screen as well... usually I use the windows key... but I did use Alt-Tab... that may have been totally coincedence though... Please escallate this BLIZZARD TECHS!!!!

They know about the inability to select specific game modes.

The 2 biggest suggestions from the community are are 1) run SC2 in admin mode, 2) run the Repair Tool.

Also, there's this from a blue that has worked for some:

Ive heard that after logging in, you dont click on anything until the kerrigan screen loads up, then the MP modes will all be there.

Plus

Here's an updated list of workarounds for the unavailable unranked/ranked modes.

You don't need to do them all every time, just try them out to see which works best. The first one seems to be the simplest.
1) Wait to click on anything until after the Kerrigan screen appears (if you have hots) and your league portrait boarder loads (if you are ranked). If you are neither of these, wait 5-10 seconds after logging in before clicking on anything.
2) Log out and back in,
3) Switch from one region to another and back again,
4) Restart SC2
5) Run the Repair Tool in the Launcher
6) Run SC2 as an Administrator.

Also, I've seen Bliz suggesting that players clear their DNS cache in these cases:

Good news tho:
