Day Session Suspended On Day 9, Andy Roddick Still Set To Play

Rain has washed out action at the U.S. Open for the time being, suspending several matches still in play, although the night session - featuring what could be Andy Roddick's final match - is still scheduled for 7 p.m., weather permitting.

Two singles matches were underway when play was stopped. No. 4 David Ferrer was two games away from finishing off No. 13 Richard Gasquet in a fourth-round match, although the match has been a close one: Ferrer won the first two sets 7-5, 7-6 (7-2) after rallying back from being down 4-2 in the second set to take the tiebreak. The third set was at 4-3 with Ferrer leading 30-15 on Gasquet's serve when play was called.

Meanwhile, No. 11 Marion Bartoli was coasting against No. 3 Maria Sharapova, up 4-0 in the first set. Sharapova will surely be glad to break Bartoli's momentum, as the quarterfinal match will be suspended until Wednesday.
