The 08, 09, and 11 finals were on Sunday due to rain.
Oh So the women's semis have always been on Friday? Pardon my ignorance

It has been like this since the all Williams finals in 2001. It's just with all the rain delays, the schedule has been busted.

Willingly go head-to-head with Monday Night Football? There's no way, NO WAY, CBS would ever agree to do that.

Especially since the final would fall against the opening-week MNF doubleheader. The only way a Monday U.S. Open final works is for the match to end before 7 p.m. eastern. Perhaps a 4 p.m. start.
