    Andy would probably go right ahead and win the USO just to be bloody minded!!!

    Maybe it's because the women's matches are shorter and they have more hope of getting them finished - only guessing though.

    Or because the women's final is a day earlier than the mens'. I still think the men's R4 should have had preference though. Delaying the women would have only meant they had to play 3 best of 3 matches in 3 days, unlike 4 best of 5 in 4 days.

    I jolly well hope he does! I'm feeling rather bloody-minded toward the USO myself! All the other tennis places I've looked at say that because of the rain delays and everything, it's 'guaranteed' that no one from the bottom half of the draw will win the Open! tongue

    So I would like Andy to prove them wrong. At least if he wins, no one can say he had an easy time of it! The haters will probably come up with something, though.

    I think it's Grandstand isn't it - looks like the same schedule as yesterday.

    Yes, Grandstand. Was putting up the OOP on the main thread and realised I needed to come back to amend this.
    Very Happy

    ^^^ agree with that last sentence.

    Nothing to be done about the weather - and there have been other years when conditions have been grim. Other Slams have suffered too weather wise and ended up with such a backlog that back2back matches have been inevitable in the latter stages.

    I had a thought that if there were NO ATP events in the week before that the the Slams gain an extra 2 days i.e. a 3rd weekend at the beginning. Play R1 all seeded players over the first Sat/Sun (that'd pull in the crowds and the TV co's) allowing qualifying final rounds the same days. Finish R1 Mon/Tue (those featuring Qualifiers to allow rest) and start R2 Tue rather than Thursday. It's about the only way the slams could build in a 2 day leeway to help with bad weather scheduling.

    They somehow need to play all the Qtrs on the same day, and R4 if possible (just as at Wimbledon).

    With regards to a roof the USO have a real problem on their hands.
    Ashe is their show stadium but putting any kind of roof on that thing would be a massive task but they'd probably not want to spend the money on roofing over the other 2 show courts because they don't hold so many spectators.

    Sorry, I could go on about this for ages ..........

    Someone called Tarango was mentioned as discussing two new courts with roofs but that is something for the future.

    Well, I'll be missing any action (if it happens). Best of luck, Andy, channel your frustration into brilliant play, come on!

    Instead of cheering, here's what I'm wishing you: sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny sunny A SUNNY happy day!

    I hope your wishes come true, but the forecast for NY for today is really bad too. This is getting me down - I can't imagine how the players must feel!

    Was relieved to get up and find that at least he hadn't lost as I didn't bother recording "just in case" the rain stopped! It really is a farce now. But hey no one can control the weather.

    It was just as well as there was no play last night. If Andy had been scheduled last night he would have had to hang around the US Open site for much longer. At least he was able to go back to base and relax.

    The longer this goes on, the more likely it will impact Andy (and Colin and Ross) in terms of their readiness for the Davis Cup next week. Exclamation

    There are several webcams in New York - you just google New York webcams. It looks as though it might have stopped now although it's still very wet.

    There's a photo on twitter of Andy practising outside so looks like this match will start at 4pm - fingers crossed.
