Sooner rather than later. And I can't say I blame them.

Exclamation Re: How long before CBS....................

My guess is that if they get ripped in the ratings by NASCAR, which is expected, then I think they may have to reconsider moving it back to Saturday afternoon. Epsecially if Federer is still dominating because CBS would rather see him play at night because he will get ratings.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens

Re: How long before CBS....................

Aren't Saturdays always all day action? They still will have 3 matches.
Just put the women's final where Europe can watch.
Most of the top WTA players are from Europe.

Until 2001, the womens' semifinal was sandwiched between the men's semifinal. The change was made in 2001 to coincide with the emergence of Venus and Serena being the top players in the US. They still are, but they are not numbers one and two anymore and the players who end up in the finals are not household names in the US except for Sharapova and even she can't bring in the ratings like Venus and Serena can. If the ladies' final ratings continuet o be horrendous, CBS may have no choice but to revert back to the pre-2001 schedule for Super Saturday.

I'm sure Venus and Lindsay played at night in 2000?

They played in the late afternoon that went into the evening.

They did -- but because of a rain delayed afternoon.

The Women's final will most likely NOT be moved in the near future. While Sharapova, Venus and Serena are factors, CBS cares for ratings of course but the Fall season does not begin until a few weeks ago after the Open. Regardless of the situation, the Final is a boost for CBS from its ordinary Saturday during the Summer recess between seasons. Although when Venus and Serena are gone, I wouldn't be surprised if they moved the final to a NB 6pm.

Well more precisely it appears after certain fan groups have their favorites lose.
