In which slam wins have you been able to watch every single match live?

For any of Serena's slam wins, or even tournaments where she's gone to the final or semis - which are the ones that people have watched live, every single match.

Obviously sometimes due to our lives and time constraints, as well as broadcast issues we aren't able to watch as much as we'd like.

I remember that the 2007 AO was the first slam win in which I watched every match, as it happened, beginning to end. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do this again until Wimbledon this year I was also lucky enough to be able to watch every single match at the Olympics and the US Open. Most of the doubles too. I've been a tennis junky lately.

I think maybe AO 2009 I missed one match.


-----
The flip side of not seeing every single match is that if Serena loses, you miss it. I've never seen Serena's USO QF 2007, USO SF 2009 (I was was waiting for this one with baited breath but the scheduling fucked me over too) or her USO F 2011. Nor will I ever Anyone else happy they missed some brutal losses?

Re: In which slam wins have you been able to watch every single match live?

USO 2008
AO 2010 (though I was napping and missed the first 3 games vs Azarenka )
USO 2012 (missed the first few games vs Makarova)

AO 2007 I tried to wake up for the Jankovic match but that never happened.
AO 2009 I missed her Peng/Safina matches because I think they were both on a Friday night.
Wim 2009 I had to leave at the end of the 2nd set vs Demented and wasn't able to watch the final live.
Wim 2010 I was away again and had to miss the final.
Wim 2012 I was away again and had to miss the final.

None. I always am able to watch her non-Slam tournaments though for some reason.

Wimbledon and US Open 2012. Not before because I hadn't discovered Streaming yet. And Eurosport was only showing from 4th round on, except when she was losing early of course.

Re: In which slam wins have you been able to watch every single match live?

07, 09 and 10 AOs I missed R2 and second set of R4 for Wimbledon 2010, somehow I think I saw all the 08 US open too except the Bondarenko match.

I hate my time zone though and having to wake up for school

None of them. most of them I've missed one match. (US Open 2008, AO 2009, Wimbledon 2009, 2010 and 2012)

The Olympics doesn't count as a Grand Slam
