Men's semifinals moved indoors

The men's singles semifinals have been moved to the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center on the grounds of the Connecticut Tennis Center because the Stadium and Grandstand courts will be not playable this morning.

The Sam Querrey/Jose Acasuso match will start at 11 a.m. and will be followed by the Fernando Verdasco/Igor Andreev match. Those who have tickets to the day session can watch the match but bear in mind that seating is limited and it will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Taking a quick look at the radar map, things are not looking promising as the only break I saw between now and 2 p.m. will come in the late morning. Let's hope that there are enough breaks in the system to allow the finals to go on as scheduled - outdoors.

I don't know how much you know-but if I had tickets to Session 10/11 for yesterday, and currently have credit for 2 sessions, does the men's semis being indoors guarantee me credit for next year?

Thank you, Jim, for keep us as up to date as possible on the tournament. The Pilot Pen website is sadly lacking in information. Do you know anything about Session 12?
