Yeah, this is a good thread to have.
But in response to your question Jenny, most people aren't up this early on a Saturday morning. It's not "prime-time". They want people to watch the final so they can get that money!
But its EXTREMELY humid, and very uncomfortable. I love closeby and just walking out feels ghastly. The last few days were very hot, but today is cooler. The womens match at night should more cool though so unless it rains...
I live in Virginia and except the couple of hours where it has stopped (like right now) it has rained all night/day and is supposed to continue in an hour or so. I imagine its going to do the same thing in New York so if they dry the court quick enough, they might have a couple of hours of play later.
It is extremely windy though so the play may be very unpleasant to watch.
