Tell her to deal with your cheering and gasping.

Put her a Murray-Simon match and she'll ran away and come back after the tournament is over.

Engage her in a conversation and explain the situation.

How to watch the AO with your roommate? Well, if your computer has a screen big enough and your Internet is fast enough, I don't see a problem with watching it together from the same screen

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Well if you want to wake up and watch do it. Set the alarm, and wake up, turn the TV on very low volume, or watch on computer with headphones. You can be quiet enough that the other thing that might bother her would be the alarm which is over in a few seconds anyway. I think she can deal with that.

As for getting it to work with your schedule, it depends on where you are and what your schedule is like. Here the AO starts at 8:30 PM so I don't have the waking my roommate up problem when it comes to the beginning of the Australian day. I usually try to schedule classes grouped together and fairly early(though not too early as then I have the rest of the semester when I hate waking up early ), then come home and get my sleep in in the afternoon, obviously if your classes are spread out this won't work and you're either left with skipping class or skipping tennis, or if the class is bigger then you could bring a laptop to class and watch during class with no volume. I used to do this all the time watching hockey when I had a night class with over 200 student in it.

No, grand slams < class. I want to keep my grades up.

There are no hotels near my campus anyways, and I have no money.

Default Re: Help: How to watch the AO with a roommate?

you don't have your own room? just use a small alarm (cell phone whatever) to make sure you wake up and then use headphones and watch a stream of the AO so you don't wake up your roommate

not too difficult

Dont watch AO. Grades are more important. Nole will win anyways so it would save you 2 weeks of your time.
