Excellent. Can't see me being glued to it all week, but there are quite a few players I'd like to catch a glimpse of. The youngsters, mainly.

Fair dinkum, AO powers that be. Looking forward to checking this out, though I'd rather hoped to get as much sleep as possible in this week before the Main draw kicks off next Monday. :zzz:

Tennis fans will be able to watch Australian Open 2011 qualifying live online for the first time from tomorrow, with the men's and women's qualifying tournaments streamed live on www.australianopen.com in the final countdown to Australian Open 2011.

Streaming will begin at 9.45am on Wednesday 12 January with a preview before qualifying kicks off at 10.00am. Coverage extends through to Saturday 15 January.

The main draw ceremony, Kids Day, an exhibition match and player press conferences will also be streamed, giving fans a new level of Australian Open access and coverage.

Available worldwide on computer, iPhone and iPad at www.australianopen.com/live, the interactive coverage will allow fans to comment via Facebook and tweet their thoughts using the hash-tag "ausopen#".

Well, it looks as though only Australians are going to be shown tonight. It's not that I'm complaining, but I must say that I'm a little disappointed.
