For the 5th year in a row, weather has forced the US Open to a Monday for the men’s final. Again, I’ll lobby the USTA to push the Open back a week to finish the tournament on Labor Day. I’ve written about this before, and it makes too much sense which is why it will never be done.
Anyway, due to horrible weather today, the men’s semifinal match between David Ferrer and Novak Djokovic had to stopped in the first set. Now the Open could have run both semis simultaneously to prevent this delay. The Open had already announced that the women’s final would be played on Sunday due to forecast rains tonight.
With the weather wreaking havoc on the last weekend again, here’s what the schedule will look like tomorrow. This comes directly from the US Open.
