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 :lol:
Matches start at 2 am here.

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 :)

I'm nocturnal.

This + sheer willpower! :lol:
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 :shrug: 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.... :explode::help::scared::silly:

K,i should get some red bulls,coffee isnt working.

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 :o :help:

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

Jan 19th, 2011, 10:22 AM
I haven't really been following it as closely as I have done but the good thing is I only have one hour of contact time at university between this Friday and the following Thursday so I think I can stay up for it.

I'm finally in the timezone when matches from AO are actually during my daytime, but I dont have time to watch any. :lol::(

Jan 19th, 2011, 10:26 AM

Jan 19th, 2011, 10:28 AM
