it's done in Aussie time. Usually around 10am, so you can check the rest by going to a time zone page as suggested above. ;)

What do you mean "done in Aussie time"?
It has been out?

Well, the draw will be done at 10am in Austalia. There is a 16 hour time difference between Australia and Eastern Time Zone. So the draw will be done at 6pm here ( 2 hrs and 5 mins from this post ). Where are you located in the US?

I was wondering this too. Do they do doubles draw first?

It's probably going to be at least 3 hours from now until the draw is finished.

No, doubles will be done early next week. I think each singles draw takes about 20 mins or so :bounce:

Yep the draw is done at 10am Melbourne time....can't wait

10am Melbourne time, 11pm London time, midnight CET

Plus draw lasts much more than 20 minutes. First they are drawing which place will which seed occupy, and then the rest of the draw is held. Mens first I think

BTW, it could be listened LIVE on AO site (via AO radio) ;)

I always figured they did draws in private so they could "touch" them up a bit (e.g. replacing Maria's name in Justine's quarter with Serena's name.)

ivanban
Jan 10th, 2008, 08:24 PM
Well, last year they couldn't have done that cause Maria was in top4 ;)

I was talking about this year, as we all know the organizers would never allow Maria to draw Justine in the quarterfinals.

Yeah, that would be blasphemy :eek:

I also have such a feeling.

That would be a good QF.

Don't be nervous. Your fave just has to avoid Henin, Venus, and Serena. :smooch:

OMG I'm so nervous :scared:Maria just needs to avoid the WS. She can take Henin.

Maria just needs to avoid the WS. She can take Henin.she wont meet any of the 2 till semis at least
so semipova is safe

What do they do first? Singles or doubles?

ninanina19

She got to the final last year so I wouldn't exactly call her semipova.

Serenidad.
Jan 10th, 2008, 09:18 PM
Okay, I'll call her "another 'ova"

:lol::lol:...just because Serena can't beat Justine in a GS, doesn't mean the draws are rigged :))
