Note: TV listings for 5, 6, and 7 January were not available at publication time. ABC is airing the Hopman Cup XVI (tennis tournament) this week. Extrapolating from the Tennis Channel's schedule in the US, it appears that coverage each day is scheduled to end at 5:30PM AEDT. But it could run overtime, and the Tennis Channel might not have scheduled all of the tournament. Don't be surprised by pre-emptions and the episodes being shifted back a few days.
» broadcasts from Monday were pre-empted until the following week by the tennis.
