US Open heads into final rounds

The World

Tennis fans will be glued to their screens this weekend to watch the final rounds of the 2010 U.S. Open. The Women’s Singles semi-finals will be held on Friday, with top seed Caroline Wozniacki taking on Vera Zvonareva and Venus Williams looking to get revenge against Kim Clijsters for the Belgian’s victory over Serena Williams last year. But the real money is on the men: Will arch-rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer meet at the net for the first time at a U.S. Open Final?

Amy Eddings is WNYC host of All Things Considered and avid tennis fan, who has been watching the matches from the sidelines.
