Rain forces TV schedule changes for U.S. Open

 

Severe storms moving through the New York City area have forced a number of changes to the U.S. Open tennis broadcast schedule. The tournament will fail to finish on Sunday for the fifth consecutive year.

The men’s singles semifinal match between defending champion Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer will be broadcast at 8 a.m. Sunday on ESPN2. Play was suspended in the first set Saturday with Djokovic trailing 5-2.

Saturday night’s women’s final between No. 1-seed Victoria Azarenka and No. 4 seed Serena Williams was postponed and rescheduled for 1 p.m. today on CBS.

The men’s championship will now be played on Monday starting at 1 p.m. on CBS. No. 3 seed Andy Murray will meet the Djokovic-Ferrer winner.
