Well my power nap didnt work I just watched a review of the 08 tournament on Eurosport lets hope my eyes dont cave in on me. I Can handle falling asleep at College in the morning. AO is my 2nd favourite slam top spin. I find Roland Garros a bit dull and predictable especially in the mens side and US Open is good but only the Ashe night session. The day session lacks real atmosphere as the stadium is half full.

AO is colourful, unpredictable, full of atmosphere and most of all its on at a time when everybody is asleep and there is no fight for controls.

Can anyone think of any stayawake methods. Im thinking sit on the floor with the lights on and put the kettle and coffee pot next to me. Ill have to set alarms every hour as an insurance you could say.

Good thread. Smile

No exams or such, did them all before Xmas, but up at 7.45 tomorrow at the latest so won't be taking in anything after the Roddick match. Will there always be a BBC stream on Rod Laver Arena?

And, as expected, will be up at any time for Andy's match.  w00t

BBC will always stream at 8.30am. That should always be on Laver unless a Brit is on another court.

I'll be catching up on the night matches in the morning - I usually only stay up or set the alarm to wake up if Andy himslef is playing. Good thread though and I'll join it when I can. Enjoy the tennis!! yay yay

Not tonight for me kids.  I'll probably stay up for Andy's matches, though it depends if I can be bothered moving from the comfort of my bed to my pc whilst I watch his matches lol
