US Open 2011: Rainout Delays Donald Young-Andy Murray Rematch

NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 04: Donald Young of the United States returns a shot against Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina during Day Seven of the 2011 US Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 4, 2011 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

Donald Young, John Isner, and Andy Roddick all had their round-of-16 matches delayed due to inclement weather at the 2011 US Open.

2011 US Open fans looking to watch as Andy Murray and 21-year-old American Donald Young play their first match since Young's incredible upset earlier this year will have to wait—Tuesday's tennis has been rained out due to inclement weather in Flushing, leaving all six of Tuesday's matches to be rescheduled for Wednesday. John Isner, playing Gilles Simon, and Andy Roddick, who drew fifth-seed David Ferrer, were also set to play Tuesday.

Wednesday's forecast doesn't look much better, which means that we might see still more cascading delays before US Open tennis resumes. We're just a few matches away from the quarterfinals, which makes all of this even more irritating than it might otherwise be. 

In the meantime, Grantland has published a great look at Young, which asks whether we've already published too many looks at the dinged-up would-be star-of-the-future, if I can throw a few more hyphens your way. Given the paucity of American men coming through the ranks it's an easy thing to do.
