It is an absolute disgrace for the players. And not only that. First round matches are still on by Wednesday first week. What a mess. It's all about money. Now they see the mess they're into and they totally deserve it.

i prefer the thursday women's semis. i don't like that there are two men's semis on the same day as the women's final. i think the women's final should be left alone...

Like the other slams. I agree with this, although as a ticket holder I would be disappointed.

The USO cares more about sponsors and TV than it does about tennis.

You're frustrated and angry over something you have no control over?

If something you have control over makes you frustrated and angry, that would suggest you suck dramatically.

Some men's first rounds are on Wednesday, like Nadal's.

Not only that. With a schedule like they have on first week Wednesday, some women advance to the third round before some men have even played their first round.

USO should seriously follow the lead and tradition of all other grand slams and allocate the first two days to first round, the third and fourth days to second round singles and first round doubles, and so forth.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

I never said anything to the contrary.

Please explain how first-round scheduling affects the OP's original point about the women's SFs. Oh, wait, IT DOESN'T, since it's the same at the USO as it is all Slams.

Right...this is surprising...because? Newsflash: money makes the world go 'round. If they can make twice as much money having women's semis on Friday and men's on Saturday, you really expect them to keep it on Thursday just for tradition's or nicety's sake?

You are quite brazen to tell the most popular annual sporting event in the world how to run its business. What they are doing seems to work better than "tradition" at the other slams.

I do wonder, however, how much money they LOSE having to push the tourney.

I'd love to see a cost/benefit analysis of a roof in Flushing Meadow.
