Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Almost all of it. I have uni exams during the entire month of January, which greatly impacts (negatively) my social life during this month. Since I'm kind of stuck at home for the most part, watching tennis while reading my law books is the way to go - it's starting to become a January routine really (third year in a row, fourth to come next year) - this year with the added factor of being an MTF member so spamming MTF will be included as an extra activity

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Crappy time for western europe as far as Roger's match goes.

We have Murray vs Haase starting at midnight (Portugal and UK) and then azarenka vs niculescu before Roger's match.

Would like to ask how many time do you guys think these 2 matches will take. I think that the Azarenka match will last for about an hour not more.

Thx.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Federer will probably start at about 4am GMT considering the fixures ahead of his match.

Gives me about an hour of watching Fed spank flair Paire before my body clock presses the off switch.

I was so pissed when I checked the schedule. 11 am melbourne time is fine as it's midnight here or 7 pm or later is also fine because it's 8 am here. But no they had to put the match right in the middle of the night at 4 am.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Not enough due to time difference I race home from my job at noon and catch some of the evening session.

Also depends on success of the south tyrolean sex tennis machine.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

Most of it. I'm recording almost all the matches so if I can't watch them live or I don't want to stay awake all night I watch them the next day.

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

For a working man in Europe, it's the worst possible Slam.
I can follow some lives scores in the morning. That's it.

Will watch as much in the weekends as possible.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Re: 'How much' AO you will watch?

I'll watch as much as possible, unfortunately I have to work. There are also replays that I can watch after work of course. I'm too old for staying up all nights sadly.
But those were the days, I mean the Safin days and the days of my youth when I was only napping for a few hours after work on a couch and then up all night, (stress) eating, trying to be as quiet as possible, being late for work with Safin's crazy night sessions, oh my God!

You should have tried watching the DelPo-Federer Olympic semi-final (I was at the office, and my radio gave out!)

I'll be watching whatever the BBC in its wisdom allows me to watch. That'll probably be the men's final at 8 am. What channel it'll be on will depend on who's playing, I suspect.
