Everywhere says its starts on the 12th, but in TV guides here they start showing coverage on the Sunday?

I am confused

Esther, Sunday is supposedly the final day of qualifying according to a mate of mine. But, I think there might be some first round matches on the Sunday also? Not too sure about it, but I'm pretty sure that it's Day3 of quallies.

hmmm.... i think the women's first round matches start first, so it may be that they are on sunday, while the guys are still playing qualies. don't trust me....... bad memory, lol

Well, I think it's because of the time difference.
Sydney is GMT+10.
