The junior boys and girls doubles events at the US Open have been completely cancelled due to the rain.

Big thumbs down to the organisers. I don't see why they couldn't have played all next week - this is a Grand Slam after all. Or they could have had pro sets until the quarterfinals or something.

With the overlap in players in singles and doubles and the lack of courts, it would have been almost impossible to play all the matches. They had a handful of unused courts, but I doubt they could have fit all the matches in on Thurs. night, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Maybe if players played 3 matches on Saturday or something and some teams dropped out due to conflicts with singles.

As Mark said in the first post... they could have run over by a couple of days and play the juniors doubles on Mon/Tues as well...probably woul have been better to do that with the juniors singles too! Many of them played 4 matches in 2 days!
