Have you checked the battery voltage in the morning before you start? Assuming all else is OK with the car - the first thoughts are the battery not holding a charge. This could be a failed or failing cell(s) and require a replacement. Or possibly some accessory that is draining the battery when it sits for awhile. Is there anything plugged into the cigaret lighter outlet?

Fuel pressure is the first thing I'd check, could be a bad pressure regulator, then the injectors, they could be leaking down overnight causing a flooded condition the next day, might check to see if it blows black smoke when first started overnight.
