It is 9:55 in Missouri, 10:55 in Canada and 2:55 a.m. next day in Melbourne, so if Andy plays no earlier than 5:00 pm, that's 14 hours from now + 12:00 a.m. in Missouri and 1:00 in Canada.  Almost more than one can figure out on a Monday.

Soeda hits the ball pretty flat and relies on a lot of slice on his serves, so Andy will have a field day returning it.

Sorry, the whole thing is very confusing.  It is 7:42 a.m. on the 14th in Melbourne right now and 8:42 p.m. on the 13th in London right now.  Andy plays in 9 plus hours.

I'm a huge fan of womens tennis, but I dislike how the day always begins with a womens match.

What confuses me when the AO is on isn't so much working out the time difference (GMT+11), but the fact that I seem to be permanently a day ahead of myself, something that must be much worse for you folk who live in Canada and the US.  Also I'm retired so there isn't really all that much to distinguish one day from another.  I had to sign something and date it this afternoon when I was out and couldn't remember whether today was the 12th, 13th or 14th, so had to ask!


Soeda hits the ball pretty flat and relies on a lot of slice on his serves, so Andy will have a field day returning it.
Well that's encouraging to hear.  Andy seems to be more concerned about the extreme heat than anything else, so hopefully they'll close the roof on Hisense, or if they do but open it for his match then at least courts might not be hot enough to fry and egg but, as one journalist put it, enough to warm up a cup-a-soup!  Soeda's coach seems confident that Go will be able to handle the heat though, and Andy has played in these conditions before but not after a long lay-off, so he's got a few things to get used to.  Fortunately he's played Nishikori and Ito and so says he knows how Japanese players play.

Fingers crossed!

I don't think it's a bad thing that the best of three matches are scheduled for the very hottest part of the day, not to mention that their duration is a bit more predictable too.

Also women get a 10 minute heat break between the 2nd and 3rd sets.
