Play abandoned for the day at US Open because of rain

Juan Martin Del Potro watches ball boys drying the base line from rain drops during his match against US Andy Rodick.

The game between Juan Martín Del Potro and US' Andy Roddick will be completed on Wednesday after the US Open organization decided to call it off due to the persistent rains.

Del Potro was losing 1-0 when the match was suspended and rescheduled for Wednesday.

Only two of the six scheduled singles matches were completed on the ninth day of competition as heavy showers interrupted play on four separate occasions.

Tournament organisers eventually called off play in the evening session with three men's fourth round matches still in progress, all in the first set.

They had earlier called off the women's quarter-final between Maria Sharapova and Marion Bartoli after just four games, creating a backlog of matches for Wednesday.

In the only two matches that went the distance, world number one Victoria Azarenka defeated women's champion Sam Stosur 6-1 4-6 7-6 and Spain's David Ferrer beat Richard Gasquet 7-5 7-6 6-4.
