Historic Rain – Weather Washes Out US Open For Perhaps Last Time

Rainy US Open

Precipitation poured on Flushing Thursday, creating what may be the last rain-out ever at the US Open. The women’s semifinals were postponed until Friday, creating a stellar daylong extravaganza of penultimate men’s and women’s matches (Super Friday?). Next year Arthur Ashe Stadium will be roofed, so in the future, whatever the weather, the game will always be on.
