Australian Open 2012 Live Streaming: How To Watch The Australian Open Online

We get it. We couldn't take the price or time of a $1,000+, one-day flight to Australia. So we're joining you, couch potato nation, in the opening of another season that's bound to feature even louder grunts, even larger match ups and even riskier outfits from one of the Williams' sisters.

So where can you watch hours of a tiny tennis ball crossing a net down under?

Beginning Sunday night, ESPN will kick off over 100 hours of coverage of this year's Australian Open, featuring 12.5 hour live window blocks of tennis.

Full coverage will be on ESPN2 and the Tennis Channel. The Tennis Channel will air a majority of the early round matches, while ESPN3.com will be live streaming with eight live feeds and more than 600 hours of coverage.

The full schedule from Tennis-X:
