For the fifth consecutive year, the Men’s Final will be delayed a day by rain.

Monday’s Men’s final will begin at 4 p.m. EDT and be televised on CBS. The Tennis Channel is scheduled to re-air the Men’s Final on Tuesday at 9 p.m. EDT. It will also be streamed live on the US Open’s site, look for US Open live. 

After a relatively rain-free tournament, Championship weekend was greatly affected by storms. Andy Murray was able to get his semifinal match in on Saturday, but Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer were postponed a day by the rain. Ferrer closed out the first set after entering Sunday with a 5-2 first set lead. Djokovic came back for a 2-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-2 victory.

Murray also rallied after losing the first set. He defeated Tomas Berdych 5-7, 6-1, 6-2, 7-6.


Djokovic holds an 8-6 career advantage against Murray. He is 2-0 in Grand Slams with both of those wins coming in the Australian Open the last two years. Their first meeting was the 2011 Final with Djokovic winning in straight sets. He repeated that victory in the semifinals earlier this year, winning 7-5 in the fifth. Murray did defeat the Djoker in the semis of the Olympics 7-5, 7-5. 

Murray is seeking his first Grand Slam title in his fifth final. His other three Grand Slam Final losses were to Roger Federer, including the 2008 US Open and earlier this year at Wimbledon. Murray avenged the loss at Wimbledon by defeating Federer for the Gold Medal on the same Wimbledon Court in the final.
