The schedule for AO is really fortuitous for people in the Pacific time zone. 4 pm to 2 am. I just go with only 7 hours of sleep.

I wake up to watch my faves and takes naps when they're not playing
Matches start at 2 am here.

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

I have a maximum of 4 hours a day contact time in uni and tennis is from 00:00 til 10:00 GMT, so there are still 10 hours to eat, sleep and do assignments

Now, on the US West Coast, ESPN is showing _new_ matches from 6pm to 5am.

I'm def. taking liberties with what I watch and what I don't. (The late night/early morning matches seem to be what they're replaying from noon to early afternoon, so I won't necessarily stay up some nights.)

It also depends on _if_ I can sleep (and wake) as soon as I want....

Plus, when things get tough there's always sugar to get through the night....

I'm in UK so play for me starts at 12 midnight - so far I've been able to stay awake right until 7am (coffee & multi vitamin tablets containing caffeine have helped)

I've been living on Aus time zone since the beginning of the year

Btw - Also eating or drinking Marmite or anything containing B12 vitamin seems to work well at keeping you awake too!
