Monday, Monday

For the first time in the Open era, which began in 1968, the year's last Grand Slam tournament is scheduled to end on a Monday — a result of the push by top players to provide a day of rest between the men's semifinals and final, instead of the U.S. Open's long-standing Saturday-Sunday finish. Each of the past five years, the U.S. Open wrapped up on Monday, but only because of rain delays. Weather-related problems should become a thing of the past in the not-too-distant future: The U.S. Tennis Association announced plans to build two retractable roofs. The aim is to have a cover for Arthur Ashe Stadium by the 2016 tournament, although it might not be ready until 2017. (Photo: Cameron Spencer/Getty Images)
