IS AO killing you ??

I would like to know if AO is also so tiring for you. In Poland it starst at 1am until 2pm so it is whole night and boring, I am lucky enough being a student so I can watch it because I don't have much lectures. Last night I watched it whole night and when Safin finished his match I slept like 2,5 hours woke up, went to eat something , and to the univerisity (I was sleeping at the lecture ) and now I have to study because I have some kind of test tomorrow, but I won't sleep whole night again still tennis is more important but I am only able to survive beacuse of coffee. And I think it will get only worse as my fav players are in the opposite half so it's day after day and some great matches to follow, time difference is so bad .
But there are only four GS so I can handle it , at least USOpen and Wimby are during holiday so I can sleep normally

does anyone also has just problems with coverage ??

Re: IS AO killing you ??

yes, in the USA it start at 7,6,5 depends where you are, so I stay from 6 to 4 or 5, but yesterday the cocksuckers at espn showed the serena match and then they showed andy roddick replay instead of safin so I went to sleep at like 4...

Re: IS AO killing you ??

I had 90 minutes of sleep last night. I stayed up to watch Mauresmo and Federer, found I couldn't sleep so I watched most of Baghdatis and then fell asleep around 05:00 and got up again at just before 06:45 to catch a train.

I've been surprisingly perky today considering and I think I'm up to an hour or so of live coverage tonight before getting some sleep - I want to be up at 08:30 GMT for Murray's match.

This fortnight does kill me but I'm a dedicated little bunny, I totter on.

Re: IS AO killing you ??

I've got a test tomorrow, so I'll be watching and learning. I know it's wrong, but what can you do...

Re: IS AO killing you ??

Here in Argentina the coverage started at about 9:00 PM on sunday and ended at about 11:00 AM monday (they didn't show matches every hour but i followed them on the scoreboard )
So yeah, it's pretty tiresome.

The good thing is that most of the people are on holidays now, so it isn't THAT bad

At least it will enable me to learn whole night without risk of fall asleep

No as my sleep is more important

Re: IS AO killing you ??

I had an A/S level exam today...

I didn't sleep the night before due to tennis, and the night before I got very little sleep. So yeah, A LOT of Red Bull was needed to get me through that exam!

yeah Red Bull is great, But I don't drink it it ruins your health in express way, after friend of mine told me that she can make it in her chemistry laboratory + some flavour chemicals I don't drink it. She told me that it ruins body. Coffee is also not so good but it's natural. And I drink it only during slams exams so impact on body will be minor.

Exactly. It's only 2 weeks of the year for us, we can cope fine, and actually it's rather exciting being able to watch and follow tennis live into the small hours. OK, this may be the viewpoint of a student who's used to late nights, but I don't usually go all the way through till late morning - I packed it in at 5am today and then didn't get up till early afternoon. I missed some good matches of course, but saw enough to be satisfied.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: IS AO killing you ??

I see it as a sport all on it's own to catch as much tennis live as possible.
Coverage for me starts at 1am till about 1 a 2pm.
I didn't go to bed last night and I'm still doing pretty good at the moment, although I have my recorder set just in case.
