Day 12 of the 2012 U.S. Open is set to get underway on Friday, and the matchups are getting bigger and bigger. Getting things started at Arthur Ashe Stadium will be the Men's Doubles final between Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan and Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek. The Bryan Brothers are the No. 2 seed for the tournament, while Paes and Stepanek made it to the finals as the No. 5 seed.
There's two other high profile matchups on Friday as well. Both of the Women's Singles semifinals will take place on the main court. First (not before 1:45 p.m. ET), No. 1 seed, Victoria Azarenka will take on No. 3 seed Mario Sharapova. The winner of that matchup will take on the winner of No. 4 Serena Williams vs. No. 10 seed Sara Errani. That matchup will take place at some point after 3:45 p.m. ET.
CBS will air the Men's Doubles final and both of the Women's Singles semifinals starting at 12:30 p.m. eastern. Their coverage is set to run through 6:00 p.m. ET but it will likely stay on through the Williams vs. Errani matchup if it happens to run long. Encores of the matches will be on the Tennis Channel following ESPN's coverage.
