Reminds me of Toronto last year :unsure: Heavy winds becoz of the leftovers from another hurricane (forgot which one..) Its actually fun to see the ball go in all directions :angel:

Sep 2nd, 2006, 04:45 PM

I'm not sure...

They've moved the Davenport/Srebotnik match because it's one of only two outstanding matches in the bottom half, and thus don't want the winners to be at a greater disadvantage (that's what I think anyway). So I think they might move the Schnyder-Bartoli match to first on Court 11.

The rain is making no progress north or east, its just mocing off the ocean and much of LI and NYC is getting spared.

They just showed Roddick and Sharapova hitting on Ashe.

I think the day session has been cancelled because Andy Roddick has been sent home for the day and told he will play his match tomorrow.

Not yet, but it isn't looking like it will be played becuase there is a 60% chance of rain for tonight.

I hope i am wrong, but it isn't looking good for tonight's matches becuase:

1) The NY Yankees game has just been called after 8.5 innings (the Yankees lost:sad: ). The Yankees are in a pennant chase and they would have waited until midnight to finish this game if they knew the weather would clear up.

2) The Boston Red Sox, whose game was scheduled for 7:05 EDT, was moved to 1:05 EDT (they lost:D ) beuase they knew they wouldn't be able to get game in becuase of the rain.

The back edge of the rain is in Central NJ, it is approximately 15 miles away from me, and I'm 30 miles directly from Flushing. It is not raining in Philly, and should stop in Trenton in a few minutes.
