Rain causes doubles delay

Ana's US Open first round doubles match alongside Maria Kirilenko was suspended overnight with the teenagers leading Yulia Beygelzimer and Vera Dushevina 5-4 on serve.

The Ukrainian-Russian pairing scored first blood and led 2-0, before Ana and Maria hit back. The resumption of the match has yet to be scheduled.

Ana's third round singles match against Serena Williams is scheduled to begin at 7pm local time on Saturday (1am Central European Time) on Arthur Ashe stadium. However, the forecast is for heavy rain and there is a prevailing sentiment at the USTA Billie-Jean King National Tennis Center that Saturday could be a complete wash-out.
