Weather A Major Player At US Open

NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) – In what could be the final Super Saturday we see at the U.S. Open, it won’t be like old times. The women’s final that was scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday has been postponed to Sunday because of the bleak forecast for the evening in New York.

A start time for the match will be announced later on Saturday.

The men’s semifinals were scheduled to start at 11 a.m. ET on Saturday but a nasty thunderstorm that crossed over the New York area forced a delay. It was so severe that a tornado watch was in effect for the area. (See video HERE)

At just about noon play in the first men’s semifinal between Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych began at least with no rain, but wind playing a major factor. At one point it lifted Murray’s hat right off his head and cost him a point in a service game he would eventually drop.
