It's raining now !!!

09-01-2002, 09:11 PM
Well, it's not raining at the moment, but more rain is headed for the city as the night goes on. The schedule has been changed and might be changed again . . . Juanqui got stuck on Court 11 again :rolleyes:

Play is set to begin in 8 minutes or soon thereafter.

09-01-2002, 09:15 PM
What??? Not on court 11 again surely. :eek: This sucks. :mad:

09-01-2002, 09:22 PM
Yes, Court 11. Grrrr.

And play will begin on that court no earlier than 6 pm (30 minutes from now). So basically, I'm hoping the rain will beat them on court because I don't think Juan Carlos is completely focused right now . . . this day is shot. :(

Okay, they've been rearranged yet again. I believe the Enqvist-Haas match is the only mens' match going on right now. Juan Carlos is now on Court 7.

Play may resume again, but there's another big rainstorm headed right for New York, so don't expect too much.

09-02-2002, 12:36 AM
why do they always put Juan Carlos on Ct. 11? or Ct.10? or Ct. 6? Even in Rome they had him on one of those courts. I dare them just once to put him on a show court!

All matches have unofficially been postponed until tomorrow; second Monday's schedule has not been posted yet.

One match completes session at U.S. Open

AP Sports Writer
September 1, 2002

NEW YORK (AP) -- After a 6 1/2 -hour rain delay, the U.S Open got one full match in on Sunday and that was enough to constitute a full day session, according to United States Tennis Association ticket policies.

Rained-out sessions--when no matches are completed--qualify miniplan or individual match ticketholders for credits to next year's tournament. Season ticketholders do not get exchanges for postponed sessions.

Serena Williams took advantage of a break in the rain to win her match over Daja Bedanova in Arthur Ashe Stadium, satisfying the one complete match requirement for the day session. Other matches started but were suspended when the rain returned.


Andre Agassi's three victories at the U.S. Open moved him into second place in the ATP Champions race.

Even if he wins the Open, however, Agassi cannot overtake race leader Lleyton Hewitt.

Hewitt, the defending champion and No. 1 ranked player in the world, has 630 points to 444 for Agassi. Marat Safin, a second-round loser at the Open, is third with 430.

The top seven finishers in the Champions Race qualify for the Tennis Master Cup Shanghai, to be played Nov. 12-17. The eighth spot in the Masters Cup goes to a Grand Slam champion who finished between No. 8 and No. 20 in the Champions Race or, if no player fits that classification, the No. 8 player in that competition.


Venus Williams, two-time defending champion of the Open and seeded No. 2 this year, has a strategy for watching tennis on television.

She watches the action, but doesn't listen to the commentary.

"Too much talk for me, sometimes,"' she said. "I don't keep it too loud.That's for sure."'


Seventh-seeded Kim Clijsters got off to a terrible start against Vera Zvonareva on Saturday, losing the first set 1-6. She came back, however, to salvage the match by winning the final two sets 7-5, 6-4.

"I'll have to play better if I want to win," she said. "Even if it's not there in the beginning, my rhythm wasn't there at all. I kept fighting and it turned around. You have to keep trying, keep trying. If it doesn't come, too bad, it doesn't come. If you can turn those things around, that's very positive."


Andre Agassi's infant son, Jaden, has been a regular at the U.S. Open with his mother, retired Grand Slam champion Steffi Graf.

And Agassi likes to tease Pete Sampras, whose wife, actress Brigette Wilson-Sampras, is expecting the couple's first child.

"I, for sure, see Jaden beating up on his kid a little bit, speaking on the tennis court," Agassi said. "If it's a little girl, I have a hundred bucks that says she has a crush on Jaden."
