Six men's matches had to be called off only to be followed by a complete washout of the women's draw. A look at the Ashley Ashe Stadium in all it's damp and wet 'glory.'
Idle: While frustration was evident with players who were scheduled to play, Nadal looked the most dis-heartened with the showers.
Agony: Nadal even went on to blast organisers claimeing players' safety was being put at risk by cash-conscious US Open chiefs.
Apprehensive:Maria Francisca Perello watches her boyfriend not take kindly to the schedule, the wait and the day in general.
Collective agony: Nadal was not the only one fuming. Andy Murray had his match against Donald Young called off as well.
Battle formation: An army of support staff could not do much even with their machines, to keep the water off the hard-courts here.
Vanquished: But for all the modern technology at hand, the rains proved that sometimes, all is not enough by far.
Patience:Two fans take the patient route here or at least enjoy what they paid for, even if it meant sitting on wet seats with no match to watch.
Prolonged showers: The women's quarterfinal matches were affected worse as all the matches scheduled had to be called off.
Pack up:Serena Williams' match against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova was taken off and it brought an end to an eventful day only for those who love the rains. For tennis lovers though, it finished as a damp squib.
