Washout: Play canceled for the rest of the day


It can’t be counted as a surprise, but seeing how close the USTA got to sneaking in both semifinals, it has to count as a disappointment: Play is suspended for the rest of the day.

What this means is the Murray-Nadal semifinal will be resumed tomorrow with Murray ahead two sets to love but down a break (3-2) in the third. The women’s final will also be played tomorrow, while the men’s final will be pushed to Monday.

The only person happy about this might be Roger Federer, who now gets two days of rest before he has to play again.
