Suspended Because of Rain

I'm not even going to say the "roof" word.

More rain in New York has delayed the matches.

The second rain delay of the day and the longest of the Open so far sent fans scrambling for cover and the match between Maria Sharapova and Marion Bartoli was suspended and postponed until Wednesday. That's great news for Sharapova, who was being blitzed out of the open by Bartoli. The Frenchwoman, was on her game and led 4-0 when the rains came.

The rest of the singles matches were simply delayed or postponed and they will try to be back in action during the day session on Wednesday.
