Rain washes out all matches at US Open
Wednesday, September 7, 2011
NEW YORK (AP) -- All matches at the U.S. Open on Wednesday have been called off because of rain.
After postponing all the men's matches earlier in the day, tournament officials had been hoping to squeeze in four women's quarterfinals. But at 8:15 p.m., with rain in the forecast for the rest of the night, those matches were scrapped too.
Only 15 minutes of tennis was played Wednesday, the second straight day that rain washed out play.
Matches will resume at 11 a.m. Thursday -- weather permitting.
