Earlier... it's definitely 7:30pm in Aussie time, so 3:30am Eastern
(5:00am here in Newfoundland)

i agree...NFL/NBA/MLB are not real sports. Of the three, i like the
NFL the most. However, the NFL can't compare to a tennis grand slam.

Also, 99% of Americans don't know or care about sports outside of this
country. it's a real shame.

Oh go on, make the effort. It's such a rarity for Americans to enjoy a sport
that's played in more than one country. Not for a minute however, am I
suggesting that the NFL and NBL are 'real' sports. I'll be tuning in to the
Superbowl, it's always fun watching the the defensive team trying to make a
tackle. Such techniques those boys have......LOL

Are you sure? When I checked the AO site earlier this week, it was
showing a 630 EST start time for the men's final...

I am pretty sure that the final is a night match starting 7:30PM as
usual local time. Isn't that 3:30AM EST?

PS.

We don't need. Fine we can live in the dark but in exchange can USO start
at 6:00 am NY time and
that will be prime time for TV viewing in Australia.

Earlier, I am afraid. The AO final will start 7:30PM local time. That
means 3:30AM EST. So you can't sleep at all ;-) Thank god, I live in
Europe and can get up 9:30AM.

PS.

Yes, it was terrible for us when they didn't have night finals
