US Open adds extra day in 2013; men's final on Monday
(AP) - The United States (US) Open is moving the women's final to Sunday and men's final to Monday in 2013, building in a day of rest ahead of each title match for the first time.
The US Tennis Association (USTA), which runs the Grand Slam event played in New York, announced the changes on Friday - but only for next year.
A decision about 2014 and beyond probably will come after the 2013 tournament, USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier said.
Rain forced the USTA to postpone the men's final from its scheduled Sunday slot to Monday in each of the last five years.
