Day and evening sessions at the U.S. Open today have been postponed because of rain, the United States Tennis Association has announced.

The forecast calls for worsening conditions without the afternoon window of dry weather that organizers had hoped for. Play is expected to resume at 11 a.m. Wednesday, when there’s a 60 percent chance of rain. Weather has been a problem of late and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center has no covered courts. The men’s final, scheduled for Sunday afternoon, has been moved to Monday afternoon the last three years because of bad weather.

Six matches were scheduled for today, including Rafael Nadal vs. Gille Muller and Andy Murray vs. Donald Young.
