BBC has a fair amount of control over Wimbledon too.

7 Sports dictates the AO schedule as well. You think they play the men's semifinals on different nights because they want to?

I think you're giving the BBC too much credit there

Looking at the radar it looks like there might be a window in about 45 minutes for an hour or so

No, not really. The Williams ( if you watch them or not) are a huge draw in the US. Folks turn up to see them and TV ratings in the US go up when they are playing. The planners of the schedule know more then you seem to think you know.
