US Open Final: Serena vs. Jelena postponed

Saturday night’s Women’s Singles Final (Williams vs. Jankovic) has been cancelled and rescheduled for Sunday at 9p.m. in Arthur Ashe Stadium. The final was scheduled for Saturday night but was postponed to Sunday after the remnants of Tropical Storm Hanna dumped rain and strong winds on the New York area. It's the first time since 1974 that the U.S. Open women's championship match was not played on a Saturday. That year, Billie Jean King beat Evonne Goolagong on Monday; Goolagong's semifinal had been suspended because of rain on Friday and wasn't completed until Sunday.
