This is starting to sound like a broken record.
Wednesday’s action at the 2011 U.S. Open was postponed to due weather, just as all of the previous days matches were. Rafa Nadal, Andy Roddick, Andy Murray all started their fourth-round matches, but were only out on the courts for about 15 minutes before play was halted.
The players were then outspoken against the USTA, who urged the matches to start in rain. Nadal said the players did not feel “protected”, while Roddick wondered if the tennis officials were looking at the same weather as him when they ordered the matches to start.
The night session was canceled as well, just as Serena Williams and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova had finished their warm ups. Their quarterfinals match never got underway.
The tournament is scheduled to continue Thursday, but with the current forecast, there are those two daunting words again: weather permitting.
