Wednesday, September 7, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- Men's matches at the U.S. Open have been postponed because of rain.
Tournament officials were still hoping to get in four women's quarterfinals Wednesday.
After all matches were postponed Tuesday, the year's final Grand Slam got in just 15 minutes of tennis Wednesday before wet weather hit again.
Three men's fourth-round matches originally scheduled for Tuesday started Wednesday afternoon following a 90-minute rain delay, but play was suspended after 15 minutes.
After nearly five hours of off-and-on rain, tournament officials called off all four men's fourth-round matches. Two men's quarterfinals had been postponed earlier in the day.
