U.S. Open: Tuesday sessions, day and night, canceled
A steady rain, which began falling moments after Roger Federer finished his fourth-round match at 1:13 a.m. Tuesday, was still falling Tuesday afternoon when the United States Tennis Assn. made the decision to cancel both the day and night sessions of the U.S. Open.
Among the matches canceled were fourth-round matches for three Americans -- 21st-seeded Andy Roddick against fifth-seeded David Ferrer; 28th-seeded John Isner against 12th-seeded Gilles Simon; and wild-card entry Donald Young against fourth-seeded Andy Murray.
The weather forecast for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday isn't a lot better, with predictions of Hurricane Katia remnants hitting the area on Friday.
For those who had tickets for Tuesday's session, here is the policy on ticket exchanges and returns.
