2012 U.S. Open: Rain Delays Andy Roddick Again

Rain has been troublesome at the 2012 U.S. Open, and it suspended play once again on Wednesday. The courts became too wet and matches were delayed at 11:20 a.m. ET.

Andy Roddick continued his fourth-round match against Juan Martin Del Potro, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, on Wednesday morning. The match was halted as Roddick held a 1-0 lead in first-set tiebreak.

Men's No. 8 Janko Tipsarevic was also in action when the rains came. He leads 5-2 in the first set over German Philipp Kohlschreiber with a trip to the quarterfinals on the line.

Maria Sharapova may have been pleased to see play suspended, as she has struggled at the start of her quarterfinal match against 11th-seeded Marion Bartoli. Sharapova is already down two breaks in the first set, and trails Bartoli 4-0.
