Time Change for Sunday Finals

August 15, 2008 11:17 AM
On Sunday, the singles final will now be played at 1 p.m. and the doubles final will follow. This is a change from the previously announced schedule in which the doubles final started at noon and the singles final at 2 p.m.

The change was necessary due to the team of Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova reaching the doubles final. Since they play each other in the singles semifinal on Saturday, one of them will reach the singles final and then both will play in the doubles final. That made it necessary for the singles final to be played before the doubles final on Sunday.
