Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka will have to wait another day to play the U.S. Open women's final, after heavy winds and rain forecasted for Saturday night forced officials to turn Super Saturday into a Super Sunday twin bill.

Even without the rain during the men's semifinal between Andy Murray and Thomas Berdych, both players had trouble on the court -- especially with their serve -- as the battled 20-30 mph wind gusts that wreaked havoc on the match.

With partly cloudy skies and only a 20 percent chance of showers expected on Sunday, there's a good chance the men's and women's finals will be completed this weekend. U.S. Open officials announced the women's final will be played at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.

(Update: The second semifinal between Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer was called due to rain in the first set. That means the U.S. Open will have its fifth straight Monday finish.)
