Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Sadly, not much. Most of my watching will be staring at a live score-window at work. I already feel pissed about all the great night matches I´ll miss. Hopefully I get to see the final, at least!

Did this last year with the Nadal-Berdych and Nadal-Federer matches at the AO. Never realised how tense looking at a couple numbers waiting to change could be

Me too! same time zone and I also took the second week off work (need to use up some vacation days anyways plus I need a break after tough work schedule over the holidays). I'm gonna be a zombie at work the first week.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

I luckily has some short nights this week so I was able to go to bet at 7pm on Friday and wake up before 3am to watch Auckland final. Then I went to bed last night before 9pm and woke up at 4am so that I'm able to go to bed today at 6pm and wake up at 2am, when the play starts.

Unfortunately lectures will break my watching but there's a massive chance of forgetting to leave to Uni for lectures.

Probably zero apart from B-Nard matches (7 of those).

I'm mostly going to Melbourne Park for the $10 beers.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Well, my fortnight of exams starts on Monday (how convenient, right? ) so I doubt I'll be watching much. Maybe the evening sessions if there's a good match on.

I'm a results whore. I enjoy talking about the results more than watching them in a lot of cases.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

I go to bed at 9 PM and get up at 5 AM (3 PM in Melbourne). I prefer this to changing my bio clock completely. Luckily last year and this year I've had no uni during the AO, so I can watch it all!

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

2am for morning matches and 10am for evening matches makes it very hard to watch any matches....

I'll probably record some matches but on the whole I'm not optimistic... I'll maybe get to watch 5 matches on weekends and such. Having a job is a bitch.
