B/C CBS can bring in the rating with Agassi and Venus/Davey matches.
It's about the RATINGS...so CBS' LaborDay coverage will be successful.

THE BOSS wanted to work the Holiday Night crowd, she figured for a Holiday, that she could go under the lights. Then not again until the Final.

it's simple - in the U.S. the first Monday in September is a big holiday - so the biggest viewership ratings come for the DAY session, not the night. Therefore the USTA puts its biggest names (in this case, Agassi and Venus-Davey) on during the day.
