Hi - I'm going to the mens' semis tomorrow and am likely to be running a bit late - does anyone know if they'll really start at 11am sharp? From memory last year they didn't start until after 12pm and moreover, the CBS coverage does not start until 12pm either.

Thanks for any insight you can give me.

I think the last few years they have started the first match at noon, and the second "not before 3". I'm sure CBS will give the details later, and they will have the specifics on usopen.org later today. Just click on "schedule".

Now that Martina has qualified for the Mixed finals that will be played tomorrow, I don't know if they'll throw that match on Ashe at 11. The Mixed final is usually on Thursday, but due to the weather delays it's going to be played tomorrow. In most cases, I think it would be scheduled on Armstrong during the men's semis, but I could see Martina raising hell with the USTA and insisting that her "Final" match be played on the biggest stage.
