  10. Mike T

    Q13: Yes the night sessions take place at different times during the AO 2011.

    For the women’s singles, from Monday 17 January to Sunday 23 January, the night session starts at 7pm (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and half of the Round of 16 draw). From Monday 24 January to Wednesday 26 January, the night session starts at 7:30pm (other half of Round of 16 draw, and quarter finals). The semi finals start in the afternoon on Friday 28 January at 1:30pm though, but the final starts Saturday 29 January at 7:30pm.

    For the men’s singles, the schedule is identical up until the semi finals. The first semi final starts on Thursday 27 January at 7:30pm, while the second starts the next day Friday 28 January also at 7:30pm. The final is Sunday 30 January at 7:30pm.

  11. Brandon Kong

    For the women singles:

    The matches each day are played in a day session beginning at 11am and a night session starting at 7:30pm except for on the final two days that women’s matches are played. For these two days (Thursday 27 and Saturday 29 January), the matches are all played on centre court with play beginning at 1:30pm on semi finals day and 7:30pm for the Women’s Singles Final.

  12. Brandon Kong

    13. it does change
    The 1st night session match is at GMT 7pm and is between (1) Roger Federer versus (7) Fernando Verdasco.

    The night session match is at GMT 7pm for day 2-6 also

    Thursday 28 January Men’s Singles Semi Final at 7:30pm

    Friday 29 January Men’s Singles Semi Final at 7:30pm

    Sunday 31 January Men’s Singles Final at 7:30pm

    so basically,

    The main draw matches are played each day in a day session beginning at 11am and a night session starting at 7pm in the first week and 7:30pm in the second week. The exception is on Men’s Final Day when play begins at 7:30pm.

  13. Sarah

    Q13. Yes. On Monday 24 January the starting time for the night sessions changes from 7pm to 7.30pm AEST.

  14. Mike T

    Actually, as I’ve come to understand the question now, my final answer is:

    The full singles draw occurs starting 10am on Friday 14 January (local time Melbourne, Australia). The women’s draw was done first.

  15. Brandon Kong

    10am on Friday 14 January for womens

    10am on Friday 14 January for men’s draw

    But the men’s draw follows the women’s draw

  16. Jalen

    Q12- it was held on Friday, Jan 14 at 10 AM (morning time). The women’s draw was created first

  17. Mike T

    Clarification needs to be made, as the question didn’t specify men’s vs. women’s. The men’s singles draw started with the Qualifying 1st round on Wed Jan 12, 2011 at 10am; the women’s singles draw started with the Qualifying 1st round on Thu Jan 13, 2011 at 10am. Men’s singles draw started 1 day earlier.

  18. Brandon Kong

    The 2011 Australian Open men’s main draw singles matches will begin on Monday 17 January at 11am local time in Melbourne, Australia

    Women’s singles matches will begin on Monday 17 January at 11am local time in Melbourne, Australi

  19. Mike T
