Can someone help me figure out match schedule (EST)?

Okay, so the first matches are at 11:00. I believe we are 14 hours ahead in the eastern US. So that means that the first matches start at 1am?

When do the last matches typically start? Perhaps I can watch when I wake up in the morning ?

That's a good time. In the UK, coverage starts @ midnight. I am like a zombie for the two weeks of the AO.
yeah,but the most exciting night matches,start early in the morning so in most cases I can just wake up at 6 am and catch the best match.:)

In the UK, the evening/night matches start at 8am, so assuming you have taken the 2 weeks off work (who wouldn't), then it's easy to watch all the great evening/night matches!

And I think they are all on the BBC interactive/red button? Not sure though? Anyone know?

I have however just seen Andy Murray first match is on BBC2 at about 3.30am!

That's just so wrong! :) Living here in EST makes the Aussie Open a real challenge for viewing...I don't want to know who won before I view a rerun or clips, but manuveuring around the web after the fact ain't easy.

I recall Stepanek/Roddick playing and you got up fresh as a daisy at 7am to watch and throw out your bon mots with other lively TTers ... whilst I, the East Coaster, start paling out at 1:37am, dog tired, eyes shot to hell....Ugh! 'Haven't gotten over that since!..:shock: :)

no question.


Wimbeldon is a joy here in the UK. It's wall to wall on 2 national TV channels (with no commercial breaks) national radio and on the bbc website. In fact, it's pretty cool for the entire month - from Queen's onward.

It's my faovourite time of the year.

Well if I recall I watched the Men's final at about 6am in the morning? Which isn't too bad. I watched from about 11pm-4am the Wimbledon final lol.

edit: I'm Australian.

Actually. You are 14 hours behind :)

Yeah, I used to take the day off school just so I could watch the US Open mens final live in the morning in Australia..

When I lived in the US, the French & Wimbeldon were not bad to watch because of the time difference. So I think Americans get the best of the deal..

Living in Australia, its basically all 3 slams that we have to stay up all night to watch..

Thats why I love the Australian Open time, because regardless if I am home in Australia and its full coverage on Ch 7, or here in Japan visiting my wifes family. The time is almost the same, only 2 hours difference..

Lucky for people who live in the west coast. 12 am for me. :)
Yeah, and down here in So Cal we aren't 'rear end' deep in snow. We have tons of women who weigh under 130lbs. Life is good! :)

It's the start of the 2nd decade of the 21st century: the DVR (and staying away from the InterWeb) is your friend...
