Well, the effects of Hurricane Isaac were bound to travel up the east coast and ruin at least one day of the US Open. Viewers of day nine saw only two singles matches get completed because of the rain.

Day 7: Halfway Home

by Jake Kring-Schreifels, Ben Kelly

Just two days after what may have been Andy Roddick’s most emotional match, it wasn’t unforeseeable that Sunday could have been his last. Like a baseball team that plays lethargic on a Sunday afternoon following a late night walk-off win, Roddick had to quell Friday Night Lights residue. After four sets however, retirement was delayed once more.

Roddick defeated Fabio Fognini 7-5, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 and continued his fight against putting down the racquet. Once again, even in a half-filled Arthur Ashe stadium, the Flushing fans made their presence felt for their American.
