You can't fault the intent to honor Arthur Ashe in as many ways as possible. The United States Tennis Assn. already holds an Arthur Ashe Kids' Day here in Arthur Ashe Stadium each year before the U.S. Open. And now the USTA has added something to the U.S. National Tennis Center: the Arthur Ashe Commemorative Garden. Its centerpiece is a 14-foot statue of a man--not Ashe--tossing a tennis ball, about to serve. Except there is no ball. There is no racket. And there are no clothes.

— If you wanted to see Rafael Nadal play Roger Federer in the U.S. Open men's final this year, you're not. If you wanted to see the men's final between Nadal and Novak Djokovic on Sunday, you didn't. Blame Jack Sock for the first part and rain for the second. For the third straight year, the men's final will be played on a Monday. The match between the top-seeded Nadal and third-seeded Djokovic will begin, weather permitting, at 1 p.m. PDT on Monday. Sunday's match was called after a light rain that began early Sunday afternoon was still falling at 3:15 PDT and without any optimistic expectations for a break.
