U.S. Open officials are exploring the possibility of amending its schedule to switch its final day to a Monday. The three other Grand Slam events, the French Open, Australian Open and Wimbledon all wrap up their action on Sundays. USTA Tournament Director Jim Curley has told The Associated Press that the USTA has opened discussions with CBS about finding a way to heed players’ calls for a day off between the men’s semifinals and final.

The U.S. Open is the only Grand Slam event that schedules its semifinals and finals on consecutive days, Saturday and Sunday. One proposal would shift the men’s final from Sunday to Monday, and the women’s final from Saturday to Sunday. The USTA also is considering keeping the men’s title match on Sunday, but moving the semifinals to Friday.
