Rain Forces Women´s Semis to be Postponed to Friday!

Rain cancelled an exciting Thursday at the US Open. No matches will be played today at Flushing Meadows, as rain kept falling in New York and the weather forecast anticipated worse conditions for later in the day. Serena Williams, Flavia Pennetta, Roberta Vinci and Simona Halep will not go on court to conquer the US Open women's singles final, not on Thursday at least.

The organizers decided to move the women's semifinals to Friday morning, starting at 11:00 AM and the men's semifinals on the same day in the later afternoon, no longer with a 3:00 PM start, but with a 5:00 PM start.

Here the final order of play for Friday: Arthur Ashe Stadium 11:00 AM
