Anyone for tennis?

News and notes from the U.S. Open

Schedule change


The women’s quarterfinal between No. 2 Jelena Jankovic and No. 29 Sybille Bammer, which was originally scheduled to start now at Arthur Ashe, has just been moved to Armstrong and will start at 8:30.

The reason is that Roger Federer is in a dogfight with Igor Andreev that no one outside of Russia anticipated, and coming off Novak Djokovic’s five-set win, the day session has run way over.

Andy Roddick-Fernando Gonzalez will begin on Ashe after the Federer match ends and the stadium crowd can be turned over, which will take awhile.

Without this change, Roddick might not have seen the court until after 11. Still, I’d be interested to hear if anyone on here had a night ticket for Ashe and now will only see one match instead of two.
