Not a done deal but it is a possibility



The U.S. Open men's final has been pushed an extra day, to Monday, the past four years. Soon, according to the United States Tennis Association, it will become a permanent arrangement, possibly as early as this year.

"We're in ongoing discussions regarding the schedule to ensure there's a day of rest for the men and women between the semifinals and finals," Chris Widmaier, the USTA's managing director of corporate communications, said Thursday. "It's not clear if it will happen for 2012, but we expect it will by at least 2013."

They think they can beat Monday Night Football?
Exactly.

Fucking USTA morons.

Schedule the SEMIS on Friday, the FINALS on Sunday, and don't spread the first round over 3 days.

How fucking difficult is this? :facepalm:

pretty annoying. I went to Super Saturday last year and was thinking of going to the Finals this year, IF it's on a weekend. I'm coming from 8 hours away and don't want to have to take 1-2 days off work.

So USO is obviously abandoning the Super Saturday, or are they thinking about a no-match Sunday? But, as they probably abandon the Super Saturday, Friday semis would work better. And should it rain on Monday, the final would be on Tuesday, which would be terrible. If they want to have more match days, then start on Sunday like RG.

The Monday final is HORRIBLE. It starts at 4:00 on the East Coast. The entire country is at work. The USTA is working really hard to make the USO the most hated Slam. God, I fucking hate them!!! :mad:
