The 2011 U.S. Open Tennis Championships have reached the semifinals, and dream matchups abound today at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing. For a tournament that lost two days mid-week to heavy rain the final weekend really could not set up any better.
On the men’s side the top four seeds have all reached the semifinals. Top-seeded Novak Djokovic will take on third-seeded Roger Federer, while fourth-seeded Andy Murray tries to knock off No. 2 Rafael Nadal. The winners are scheduled to meet on Monday at 4 p.m. in the men’s final.
On the women’s side, Caroline Wozniacki, seeded first and ranked No. 1 in the world, meets 28th-seeded Serena Williams, still regarded as the world’s best player, in a highly-anticipated prime time match Saturday night. In the other women’s semifinal ninth-seeded Samantha Stosur faces Angelique Kerber. The women’s final is set for Sunday at 4 p.m.
