This thread will be opened on a trial basis; if all goes well we may allow it to stay.

It is to be used for live commentary for matches, be very clear this is not a live scoring thread.

This will be used as the official thread, new threads are not to be created for each match, this will result in the closure of this thread.

Enjoy!!

once a thread reaches 5,000 posts it's closed and a new one is opened... I think it has something to do with bandwidth or something... but someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The latest forecast indicates worsening conditions with no projected breaks in the rain through the remainder of the day and into the night. Due to this forecast, the USTA is cancelling the Tuesday, September 6 Day Session (session #17), and the Tuesday, September 6 Night Session (session #18). Play will resume tomorrow, Wednesday, September 7 at 11 a.m. ET, gates open at 10 a.m. ET, weather permitting.

They have indoor practice courts. So they can all practice.

And maybe it wasn't the US Open, but I'm ALMOST positive that a men's match was played indoors once. It was one of those three courts in a space a la Dubai's outer courts, and they used the center court with audience at the sides. Anyone remember what I'm talking about?

Wicky and Caro did not play indoors in 09. They were on Armstrong while Serena/Kim was on Ashe. There was no TV coverage because of all the rain and such, IIRC.

Indoors is set up like a practice facility. No spectator room at all. Would never happen unless they got so desperate.

If the USTA has a brain, which we know they don't, if a men's match goes long, they should move a Women's QF to an available court, like Court 17. (Even though Isner/Simon has 4 hours written all over it)
