Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal has said that he is annoyed about the 2013 US Open men's final being played on a Monday. According to Sport24, the decision was made in order to finally give men a day off between semis and finals.
Nadal said that although it was good to have the day off between the semis and finals, at the same time it was one more day for the tournament. That situation is due to change sometime around the turns of the decade, according to US federation officials, who have unveiled a renovation plan for the ageing National Tennis Centre costing 550 million dollars, the report said.
The Open still insists, along with the French Open, on staging the first round of play over three days instead of the more organised two and that makes for an untidy schedule, and chaos in the case of rain, such as has already happened this week, the report added.
