The schedule for the 2017 Fayez Sarofim & Co. U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship has been slightly modified.
The opening day of main draw matches, Monday, April 10, will now be a single session beginning at 3p.m. instead of two sessions. Play will begin on Stadium Court at 3p.m., with a second match starting not before 6p.m., which will be followed by a third match.
If possible, additional matches will be scheduled for Court 3, and play on that court will start no earlier than 3p.m.
This schedule change has been made to accommodate player travel into Houston from the preceding week’s Davis Cup ties, which will take place in various countries.
The remainder of the week is unchanged. Qualifying will be held on Saturday and Sunday, April 8 and 9, beginning at 10a.m. and 11a.m., respectively.
Tuesday until Friday, April 11-14, will feature two sessions daily, beginning at noon and 6p.m. Saturday, April 15, remains a single session with the singles semifinals played back-to-back starting at 1p.m. followed by the doubles final at 6p.m. The singles final will take place at 2p.m. on Sunday, April 16.
