In the tennis world, January means it's time to stock your pantry with midnight snacks, program the coffee maker and give your boss a heads up that you might be a little red-eyed during morning meetings. It's no secret that the Australian Open is the toughest Grand Slam for Americans to follow, given that Melbourne is 16 hours ahead of the East Coast. However, ESPN and Tennis Channel have tennis fans covered.

ESPN2 and ESPN will feature more than 100 hours of live tennis. For those who don't like having to rely on ESPN's programming decisions, the network's online arm, ESPN3, will carry the action on all seven televised courts -- Rod Laver Arena, Hisense Arena, Margaret Court Arena and Courts 2, 3, 6 and 8 -- for the first 11 days of the tournament. ESPN2 will also re-air some of its coverage during normal waking hours in the United States.

Meanwhile, Tennis Channel will supplement ESPN with its own live coverage. It will also run its highlight-and-encore show, Australian Open Today, in the morning daily from Jan. 13 through Jan. 22.

Here's ESPN's live programming schedule for the Australian Open. Coverage begins Sunday at 7 p.m. ET.
