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!That's a good time. In the UK, coverage starts @ midnight. I am like a zombie for the two weeks of the AO.
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.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.
ha!Silly!It wasn't the sleep,it was seeing Rady that made me sound so fresh and happy!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!..

but anyway..AO is for sure the hardest slam to follow.[/QUOTE]
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.
Actually. You are 14 hours behindOkay, 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 ?
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..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.
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!Lucky for people who live in the west coast. 12 am for me.
