Rain delays US Open final

Rain delays US Open final

The US Open final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic has been delayed until tomorrow due to persistent rain at Flushing Meadows.

The match was due to begin at 4:30pm local time but the players never made it onto the court, with rain forcing an extra day’s play for the third year in succession.

The women’s doubles final was deep in the third set when play was suspended in early afternoon and was initially switched to another court in the hope that the weather would improve.

That match – with the sixth seeds Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova serving at 0-15 and 4-5 down in the third set against second seeds Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova – is scheduled to resume at 3pm local time on Monday.

The men’s final is then scheduled to follow, with a start time not before 4pm.
