U.S. Open Tennis 2011: Dream Matches Set For Saturday

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.

Live television coverage on CBS begins at noon.
