Rain in Queens delayed most of yesterday's matches, so Michigan's Brienne MINOR will play her opening match today. For those who want to follow, her match is scheduled in the 11:00* slot on Court 10, she's following 1 1/3 men's single's matches (one was postponed after the second set yesterday).
It probably won't be a streamed match,* but it's getting a lot of interest, even for non-Wolverines. Brienne is the first African-American woman to win the NCAA Division 1 singles championship, and her opponent, Tunisian Ons Jabeur, is the first Arab woman ever to make it to a third round singles match in a major, this year's French open.
Great NY Times article about Brienne (with internal link to article about Jabeur):
*EDIT: The US Open website streaming link is now live and links to matches currently on ESPN3, so there's hope. See posts below for Brienne match time estimates.
TERRIBLY HUMILIATING EDIT #2: How did I invent a different last name? I've got to start getting some sleep and not sneak in stuff like this at work. I mean, her last name is even in the Times LINK! Jeez.
