First week I've University exams so I'll see only a few matches. The second week I'll some of them but I won't see the final (I'll be on holydays).

I expect to follow the Australian Open more from live scores and highlights on Youtube than on live matches on TV/Internet. I will put special attention on matches of promising player more than on matches of the top players. Brands-Klizan, Monfils-Dolgopolov, Hewitt-Tipsarevic, Reister-Rufin, etc. A lot of good matches to see on the early rounds. But I think that they will be played on morning or afternoon, and in Europe the most confortable hour is the night session.

It is a shame because the Australian Open is my favourite Grand Slam.

There are actually three madatory things that prevent me from watching AO. First, an exam on Thursday morning, I'm probably ready once the evening session starts. Then there are two most important Alpine skiing race weekends, Wengen next weekend and Kitzbühel the following week. And I'm not going to miss those weekends' downhill races that are on Saturday in both weeks. I hope women's final will last long so that I'm able to watch the entire men's doubles final after Kitzbühel downhill.

Probably the first 4-5 hours of play each day.

Plan on hitting the hay early and waking up early (2:30am here) for the final (obviously) and probably one semi and maybe a QF or two.

The last few nights I've been unable to sleep through the night for some reason, so I might "have" to watch even more...

The time zone difference isn't great for us Brits, but i will stay up if there is a match i really want to watch, and i could set my alarm earlier so i can watch the night sessions

Won't be able to watch a lot of week 1 since we have finals and then right after that I'm going away. And the time difference is a pain in the ass, too bad since AO might be my fave slam otherwise. But I'll watch when I get a chance. However I will not miss the latter stages even if my school work (we're starting a new course during AO week 2) suffers a little due to lack of sleep.

latso already said the matches start at 2 AM here, in Bulgaria, so I won't be able to watch many matches.
I would skip some classes from school, if Del Potro and Murray play against each other in quarters. Same about an eventual semi between Federer and Murray/Delpo
