2012 U.S. Open Results: Rain Postpones Play For Andy Roddick, Maria Sharapova

Heavy rain slowed down play at the U.S. Open on Tuesday and eventually washed out the highlighted evening matches in Flushing Meadow, NY involving American Andy Roddick and women's third-seed Maria Sharapova.

Roddick was playing No. 7 Juan Del Potro to an even 6-6 score in the first set of their fourth-round match when rain suspended play and eventually ended the night with play scheduled to resume on Wednesday around 12:30 p.m. as the second match at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Sharipova will begin play on the main court as she tries to recover from an early 4-0 deficit to No. 11 Marion Bartoli when the two resume their suspended match on Wednesday morning.

No. 2 Novak Djokovic was up 2-0 in the first set of his fourth-round match against No. 18 Stanislas Wawrinka before their match was halted. The two also resume play at 11 a.m. on Wednesday at Louis Armstrong Stadium.
