Anyone for tennis?

News and notes from the U.S. Open

Another late start


For the second straight day, a long men’s match during the day will push the night session into the late-night session. This time, they won’t move the women’s match to Armstrong, either.

 Andy Murray just got done beating Juan Martin del Porto in four sets — though those four sets somehow took four hours, longer than Federer’s and Djokovic’s five-set wins yesterday. And that, combined with an almost-three hour doubles match to start the day session, means the Williams match won’ t start until at least 8:30. And skipping ahead, the Rafael Nadal-Mardy Fish match won’t start until at least 10-10:30, and might start after 11.

By the way, I can usually come up with a prediction on any match (Nadal in four, for instance), but I honestly have no idea who will win this Venus-Serena quarterfinal. Anyone want to try?
