This year it was:

Rod Laver Arena 11am
Vodafone Arena 11am

All other courts from 10am until Thrusday (Day 4)
Friday (Day 5) onwards all courts from 11am

If memory serves me correctly ;)

erm... RLA usually starts at 10:45am in the first week!
Outside courts are 10am first week.

Then it moves to 11am in the second week for all courts... like someone already posted! :D

Not this year it wasn't, for Rod Laver Arena, previous years it was.

Vodafone Arena did start at 11am this year, last year it didn't, I know that for fact. (As I watched the Anna V Justine match which was the first match on the Tuesday and it didn't start until 11am, even though the stadium was full at 9.45am)

As for all courts starting at 11am in the second week, well that is correct, but also play on the first weekend started at 11am and has for anumber of years, now I am not 100% sure what time play started on the first friday, but since it was the first day for rd 3, I am assuming it started at 11am as the saturday is the 2nd day for rd 3, but as I said I am not 100% sure and I don't buy the daily schedules anymore, else I would have checked.
But everything else I have said is 110% correct :)

Well me neither, but for that particular day, I had to pay another $25 for a ticket, thanks to greedy organizers..
