  1. 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

    1. 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

    1. 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.

      1. 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.

  3. Q11. The men’s singles trophy is called the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup. The women’s singles trophy is called the Daphne Ackhurst Memorial Cup.

  4. Q1 99th time

    Q8 180 points
    Q9 Men 10 points. Women 5 points (technically the answer would depend on if they entered the qualifying tournament and, if they did, whether they lost in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd round; they wouldn’t need a WC if they won the 3rd round)
    Q10 All 4!!
