Well, two weeks and a couple days. TV coverage starts on January 15 where I live. With the general rush of the holidays and the fact that by the end of the tennis season, I am fully prepared and willing to step away from intensly following the sport for a while, the beginning of the season always sneaks up on me. And, I always forget that there's no long lead up to the AO, as there is with the entire clay season leading up to the French Open. Just a couple of events and then, BOOM!, Slam time. Am, I ready for this? Lol. This my be my last Slam with Tennis Channel. Need to get those cable costs down. I know TTC won some lawsuit with cable providers to not be treated differently than the Golf Channel and other similar channels, but I wonder if those providers will actually move TTC to a more general (and cheaper) cable package anytime soon.
