All sessions--day and night--were rained out today at the U.S. Open today. That means that players got some rest, but they also got more time to think about things. If the weather cooperates, tomorrow's quarterfinal schedule will be really crowded, with Wednesday's feature match going to Serena Williams and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. Also lined up for tomorrow: Sam Stusur vs. Vera Zvonareva, Caroline Wozniacki vs. Andrea Petkovic, and Angelique Kerber vs. Flavia Pennetta.
Petkovic and Pennetta should definitely benefit from getting some extra rest, since one has a (waning) injury, and the other had to fight illness in her last match.
In doubles quarterfinals, the defending champions--Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova--will face French Open champions Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka. They are the 3rd and 8th seeds, respectively. 9th seeds Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, who upset 2nd seeds Dulko and Pennetta, will play 4th seeds Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond.
Daniela Hantuchova and Agnieszka Radwanska will play 15th seeds Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, and top seeds Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik will compete against 5th seeds Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova.
