Wet Weather Again Slows Progress Of US Open
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Rafael Nadal, Andy Roddick and Andy Murray began their fourth-round matches at the U.S. Open on Wednesday after getting an extra day of rest because of rain.
Then, about 15 minutes into the action, they stopped again.
A light mist turned into moderate rain and forced the suspension of play, sending second-seeded Nadal back to the locker room trailing Gilles Muller 3-0.
No. 21 Roddick led No. 5 David Ferrer 3-1 and Donald Young was up 2-1 against the fourth-seeded Murray.
The wet weather has tennis fans wondering: will the men’s final once again be pushed to Monday?
Another match, No. 28 John Isner against No. 12 Gilles Simon, was moved from one of the show courts onto Court 17, as tournament officials did everything they could to complete the fourth round as soon as possible.
Will the tournament’s finale be pushed to Monday? Make your prediction in the comments below…
