Persistent rain forced the US Open organizers to postpone the Women’s singles semifinal match between Serena Williams and Roberta Vinci.
The match was to be held on Thursday evening, but it has now been rescheduled to Friday morning. To accommodate the change, the organizers have shifted the men’s semi-final to friday evening. This shift will take Serena’s match to prime time audience in Europe and East Coast.
In the other semi-final of the women’s draw, second seed Simona Halep will face Flavia Pennetta. In the men’s category, World number one Novak Djokovic will be facing defending champion Marin Cilic in the semi-finals. Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka will be seen battling in the second semi-finals of the men’s division.
Super Saturday at US Open
Saturday will witness the Women’s Final and Men’s semi-final clashes at the US Open. The change in schedule, however, will work against Serena and Vinci. The winner of the match will have to play the final without a full day’s rest which could in turn be a disadvantage. Serena has already won all three grand slams this year and adding US Open to the list would mean a lot to her. If Serena wins the Title, it would be the first grand slam after Steffi Graf in 1988.
