U.S. Open 2012 Schedule And TV Coverage: Serena Williams Plays For The TItle

The 2012 U.S. Open features two important singles matches on Sunday at Arthur Ashe Stadium. A trip to the final is still on the line on the men's side, after weather delayed the semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer in the first set. On the women's side, Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams will play for the championship.

Djokovic and Ferrer are scheduled to begin on the main court at 11 a.m. ET. Ferrer led the first set, 5-2, before severe storms in the New York area caused the match to be suspended. The Spaniard will be looking for his first trip to a Grand Slam final. Djokovic is trying to make it two straight U.S. Open Championships.

Williams and Azarenka will follow the men on the main court, with that match scheduled to start no earlier than 4:30 p.m. ET. Williams will be seeking her fourth U.S. Open title and 15th Grand Slam trophy overall. Azarenka won her first Grand Slam earlier this year, at the Australian Open, in her first trip to a major final.

The women's doubles championship will also be handed out on Sunday as Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka will face Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci. The two sides begin their match at 1:30 p.m. ET in Louis Armstrong Stadium.

The men's semifinal can be seen on ESPN2, while the women's final will be broadcast on CBS. The doubles, and all matches, can be streamed at USOpen.org.

Williams had much less of a struggle as she defeated Italy's Sara Errani in straight sets, losing just three games in the match. Williams was dominant on her serve, tallying nine aces and winning 92% of her first-serve points.

Americans Bob and Mike Bryan took home the U.S. Open title in men's doubles on Friday when they defeated Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek in straight sets.

2012 U.S. Open Scores: Andy Roddick's Career Ends With Loss To Juan Del Potro

The professional career of Andy Roddick ended Wednesday, as the American tennis star lost to No. 7-seeded Juan Del Potro, 6-7, 7-6, 6-2, 6-4, in a Round of 16 at the 2012 U.S. Open. Roddick, who announced earlier in the tournament that this would be his last, exited Arthur Ashe Stadium to a chorus of cheers from the Flushing Meadows, NY crowd.

"For the first time in my career I don't know what to say," said an emotional Roddick, 30, after the match. "Since I was a kid I've been coming to this tournament and I felt lucky just to sit where all of you are today to watch this game, to see champions that have come and gone. I've loved every minute of it."

After waiting through Tuesday's rain delay, Roddick started strong on Wednesday winning the first set 7-6. However, just when it seemed Roddick was destined to pull off an upset, taking Del Porto to another tiebreaker in the second set, the Argentinan found his rhythm and pulled away for the victory.

Roddick's career ends with one major championship crown, the 2003 U.S. Open, and many fantastic memories at the U.S. Open and Wimbledon -- where he made three finals. Roddick achieved his highest world ranking (No. 1) in Nov. of '03.

Victoria Azarenka, the women's No. 1 seed, survived her U.S. Open quarterfinal match Tuesday, as she ousted defending champion Sam Stosur in a three-set thriller, 6-1, 4-6, 7-6.

Statistically, Azrenka dominated in first service points as she won 70-percent (46 of 66) of them, while Stosur converted just 58-percent. The native of Belarus also won six of her possible eight break points, while Stosur was 4-for-11.
