Tain, you are right on the ball with the updates. :thumbs-up:

I've got my fingers crossed for some live tennis from Flushing this eve though it is still a bit damp in these parts. :(

No problem, guys! :thumbs up: I wanna see some women's matches.  Feel for the ladies who have had it worse than the men due to these conditions. :(

We're now seeing phase two of the court-drying process - the blower machines!

Sorry, but from the official tournament website.  You guys can go there and check for yourself as well.  I look at the "As It Happens" page and the "Fanbook" page since they write updates in both sections.

Also, there is the weather page which is pretty informative, but it doesn't tell you quick updates like the other two pages I posted earlier. Here you can see the remainder of tournament schedule and who is broadcasting.

No problem guys!

Posting from a tennis blog from the NYTimes called Straight Sets:

Women’s Semifinals to Play on Adjacent Stadiums … Maybe
By LYNN ZINSER AND LIZ ROBBINS

UPDATED, 8:05 p.m: The halls are alive with the sound of pacing. Kim Clijsters, dressed in her warmup suit, carried a collection of wrapped rackets as she poked her head out the door to check the soggy court conditions in Arthur Ashe Stadium 30 minutes ago.

“Can they make it stop raining?” she said with a resigned smile to the security guards. Despite the dismal day turned to night, Clijsters still seemed to be in good spirits as she retreated to the locker room, awaiting her semifinal with Serena Williams that had been scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.

Officials with the United States Tennis Association, also walking briskly in the hallways, insisted they were still optimistic the rain would stop. And by 8 p.m., the drying crews returned to Ashe Stadium and Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Two 19-year-olds, Caroline Wozniacki and Yanina Wickmayer, will play in Armstrong, the secondary stadium, when the weather permits. Their match was supposed to start at 3 p.m.

What was supposed to be “Super Saturday” has turned to “Soggy Saturday” and will turn into “Super Sunday,” with a whole slate of matches scheduled (or rescheduled). Roger Federer, the world’s No.1, will play the second men’s semifinal on Sunday, against No. 4 Novak Djokovic, taking the spot that was originally scheduled to be the men’s final before rain ravaged the lineup. CBS announced it would televise the match starting at 4:30 p.m.

The semifinal between Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin del Potro will take place at noon on Arthur Ashe Stadium. It will be broadcast on ESPN2.

The women’s final — provided the semifinals are completed on Saturday night — is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN2.

Woz breaks Wick 1-0

It looks like Kim's slice is also causing problems for Serena.
