Rain delays have been marring the 2012 U.S. Open since it started back on Aug. 27, 2012, and another one struck Flushing Meadows midway through Tuesday. The three games currently in progress at the tournament -- two singles matches and one doubles match -- have been suspended.
In the women's draw, No. 3 Maria Sharapova trails No. 11 Marion Bartoli, as Bartoli picked up two quick breaks to take a 4-0 lead in the first set prior to the stoppage of play. On the men's side, No. 4 David Ferrer is up two sets on No. 13 Richard Gasquet, 7-5, 7-6 (7-2), and holds a 4-3 lead in the third set. There is no word on when the play is expected to resume for the tournament.
If the rain continues to pour in New York, there may be bleedover into the 7 p.m. matches, including the marquee match of the day between No. 20 Andy Roddick and No. 7 Juan Martin Del Potro at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
