Is that 4/5pm Canadian time? Or did it sink in to them that yeah, it's hot... lets give them a break :lol:

(I assume the second court is just a copy/paste mistake :))

I really don't know how they're expecting to finish the tournament in time :shrug:

How is this tournament supposed to finish in time for Sydney / Auckland. It just seems there are too few courts, and too few matches on them :shrug:

Depends where you live in Canada ;) d_s lives in British Columbia so it's easier for him to follow this tournament :p

As long as Frank :worship: knows when and where he has to show up to beat his opponents, that's all we care about http://smileys.sur-la-toile.com/repository/Respect/F_EYEB%7E1.GIF

QF's tomorrow, SF on Saturday and Final on Sunday. Same format as every other year, the Men's first Round in Sydney doesn't start until Monday and goes into Tuesday. Any player going to Auckland might have to fly out Sunday night, but it is no different to other years.

It just seems so bizarre to me, but that could be because of the tournament set-up, with just the two courts. I know there were only three in previous years, but two...it just seems a small number :)

Yeah fair point, this year however they have the two courts going at day and night where as previously only centre court had the night session so that gives them a couple extra a day.:)

So far I think the new format has worked well, it's dissapointing it's the last year of the tournament.:(

I don't want Zverev to be slaughtered. I enjoyed watching him in the first round...and I'd feel bad for his little brother (or, the random russian family in the crowd) to see him lose so badly :lol:. On the other hand, Vinnay is pretty cool. I don't applaud him, I strike the rapper pose and tilt my hat sideways. :hatoff: Still, today I've had 2 from 2. Maybe I'm due for a loss =)

Majority of Australians dont know this, plus tennis is no where near as popular as AFL and NRL in Australia so theres not as much need. Semifinal and final will be showed on Channel 7, hopefully big Lleyton and Sirianni will be there.

they show ATP events, what are you talking about? They show some semis and final depending on the tournaments, usually just the ones in the states.

Why can't Fox show matches till friday and then channel 7 take it on from there?

ah, ok. I think Channel 7 do have full rights of adelaide and Gold Coast (WTA) but they just choose not to show it, it's annoying and hope coverage is better for brisbane enxt year but they will still have to face going head-to-head with the hopman cup

This is something I am choosing to call 'doing an Oli'. But it only counts if he stares down the linesperson, swears a bit and acts like he was standing an entire foot behind the line. Wait, I just picked on my player. I don't even know why I'm here! I just stayed here after Jarkko and Oli won :D [[Also, thanks for seeing that I wasn't seriously having a go at Lleyton...just poking fun :)]]
