NEW YORK, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. Open men's singles final and women's doubles final have to be postponed to Monday due to the drizzle starting on Saturday's afternoon in Flushing Meadows.

Men's singles final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will be arranged at 4 p.m. on Monday.

Statement from US Open said: "Due to the continued uncertainty of the weather forecast for the remainder of the evening, the U.S. Open men's singles championship will be postponed until Monday, September 13 at 4 p.m.."

For the women's doubles final which was suspended half way as Liezel Huber/Nadia Petrova led 6-2, 4-6, 5-4 over Vania King/Yaroslava Shwedova, it will be concluded at 3 p.m.

Despite all of Rafa's brilliance during his career (number one player in the world, 41 career titles, 8 Grand Slams) he has never reached the finals of the Open.

Djokovic is 0-11 against Nadal on clay and grass, but 7-3 on hardcourts.
