Please get a retractable roof...

You can see, I'm asking for it very nicely.

The showers continued at Flushing Meadows and this time nature has forced the postponement of all of Friday’s three scheduled singles matches which also included the suspended quarterfinal match between Rafael Nadal and Fernando Gonzalez.

Also delayed are the two women’s semifinals, one between Serena Williams and Kim Clijsters, the other between Caroline Wozniacki and Yanina Wickmayer.

Clijsters and her husband Brian Lynch wait in the players' lounge at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center for play to commence...

Those three matches were all rescheduled for Saturday and set to have Nadal/Gonzalez begin at noon, followed by Wozniacki/Wickmayer, with Williams/Clijsters slated to start after 8PM.

Assuming the women’s semifinals can be completed Saturday, that final will be moved to Sunday.

If Nadal/Gonzalez finishes Saturday, the men’s semifinals will be Sunday.

This means the men’s final then would be moved from Sunday to Monday.

If you remember last year, the US Open men’s final was played on a Monday for the first time in many years.
