cancel the doubles after a certain point to avoid something insane like Ai Sugiyama playing 4 matches in 1 day this year in Scottsdale?

If anything, your Scottsdale example would only be an incentive to make players do that - Ai Sugiyama won all 4 of her matches, which included the singles and doubles crowns at Scottsdale.

But to be unoriginal, No, they should not.

Make them play 5-setters... test players' physical ability... I've always said 3-sets never does that.

Make ALL the Volunteers hold up a Circus like tent over all the courts so play can happen ;)

What does rain do to the clay?

Well I am not sure what rain does to red clay but I do know that you have to wet down green clay courts to prepare them for matches. But excessive rain amounts could make them unplayable.

I'm sure they have them covered with a tarp. My question was more like "Will the courts play faster or slower"

Slower. When wet, clay often sticks to the ball and thus makes it heavier and slower.
