Because of rain, two U.S. Open men’s quarterfinals have been canceled and moved to Thursday. The Roger Federer vs. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Novak Djokovic vs. Janko Tipsarevic matches were taken off the Wednesday schedule.

I used to bite my tongue when Wimbledon was in a rain delay, and the likes of Dick Emberg, Mary Carillo and John McEnroe made snide remarks about the English weather. But for two years in a row the weather in New York has ben much worse than anything that occured in the UK. At least they built a retractable roof at Wimbledon, and Roland Garros is getting ready to do the same. So everytime that clown Emberg brags about the biggest, the best, the ultimate tennis facility in the world, I know he must be thinking Wimbledon and not Forest Hills!

Playing 5 set matches back to back to accomodate the TV networks has always been a disgrace, but so typical of US sports. With no play yesterday, amd maybe limited play today with the weather forecast predicting more bad weather from the fringe of Hurricane Katia that could deluge the site of the US Open over the weekend, I am interested in hearing the NBC’s trio of experts resolution to the problem. For Embergs illucidation bigger means nought if it is nullified by the hand of god. Whoever wins the titles, it will be a battle of fitness and preparation and luck of the draw, rather than a test of tennis!
