U.S. Open: Men's final will be Monday for fourth year in a row

The U.S. Open, after hearing criticism from Andy Roddick and defending champion Rafael Nadal about a schedule that might involve playing four matches in four days, announced that the men's final will now be Monday at 1 p.m. PDT. This is the fourth year in a row the men's final will end a day late.

The rest of the remaining schedule has changed as well.

Friday will have the two remaining men's quarterfinal matches: Nadal against Roddick and fourth-seeded Andy Murray against a second American, John Isner.

The women's semifinals, which are usually on Friday, are now scheduled for Saturday beginning at 3 p.m. PDT. Serena Williams will face Caroline Wozniacki in one, and Samantha Stosur goes up against Angelique Kerber in the other. 

The women's final will be Sunday at 1 p.m. PDT. CBS will televise all the matches beginning with Friday's men's quarterfinals.
