NEW HAVEN,Conn. _ Top-ranked Caroline Wozniacki remained in Connecticut on Saturday to play the finals of the New Haven Open before heading to the U.S. Open.

Wozniacki and Czech qualifier Petra Cetkovska were scheduled to play at 1 p.m. on the Yale campus, a start time that was moved from 5 p.m. in the hopes of avoiding the effects of Hurricane Irene.

Wozniacki hopes to get the final played before the rain comes and then travel safely to New York.

Tournament officials brought in cranes overnight to remove the two-ton scoreboards from the top of the tennis stadium and replaced them with two smaller scoreboards courtside.

The U.S. Open is scheduled to start on Monday.
