Number 1 seed Rafael Nadal could take the career Grand Slam today with a victory over Number 3 seed Novak Djokovic at the US Open at Flushing Meadows, Queens. But for many tennis fans, watching the match on the TV at home won’t be an option. That’s because yesterday’s scheduled U.S. Open Men’s Final match had been postponed due to rain, with a new scheduled playing time of 4:00 p.m. EDT/1:00 p.m. PDT.
The match will be broadcast live on CBS (s CBS), but those who can’t watch it on TV will be able to tune in online. For viewers stuck at work that want to watch the match, CBS Sports and the US Open will stream it live on CBSSports.com and USOpen.org.
This is the third year in a row that the Men’s Final was pushed to Monday, following weather delays in both 2008 and 2009. But CBS Sports and the US Open had already planned to stream more than 600 hours of championship tennis from this year’s tournament live on USOpen.org.
