Severe storm warnings caused tournament organizers to stop the Men’s Semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer Saturday, with Ferrer serving for the set at 5–2. The match will resume at 11 a.m. Sunday.

The women’s final scheduled for Saturday night was postponed until 4:30 Sunday afternoon.

The delay should suit Novak Djokovic. The number 1-ranked Serb was unable to adapt to the swirling winds and was losing badly to the fifth-ranked Spaniard.

Ferrer will no doubt appreciate the break as well; he can use the time to recover from his four-and-a-half hour quarterfinal struggle with Janko Tipsarevic.

The men‘s final is scheduled for Monday morning.
