After months of waiting for Grand Slam tennis action to return, the Australian Open has finally arrived.
There's one problem, though. If you aren't in Melbourne, it could be tricky to calculate when your favorite player is set to take on the big stage.
Still, there’s no need to fret. Once you figure out the time difference between your state or country and Melbourne, calculating the matches – you don’t want to miss – will become pretty straightforward.
The women's final is set for 3:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, while the men's final between Novak Djokovic and Stefanos Tsitsipas will be played at 3:30 a.m. ET on Sunday.
