NEW YORK – Today's slate at the U.S. Open features three women's quarterfinal matches, two men's quarterfinal matches and a pair of fourth-round men's matches.
Women's second seed Justine Henin-Hardenne will take on number-ten Lindsay Davenport before third seed Maria Sharapova battles Tatiana Golovin. Top seed Amelie Mauresmo has an afternoon match against number-12 Dinara Safina.
Ninth seed Andy Roddick goes against number-15 Lleyton Hewitt in the second men's quarterfinal of the day after number-two Rafael Nadal takes on Mikhail Youzhny.
Top seed Roger Federer plays his fourth round match against Marc Gicquel.
Just one singles match was completed yesterday before play was suspended by rain. The lone match provided an upset as fourth-seeded Elena Dementieva was beaten by Jelena Jankovic, 6-2, 6-1 in the quarterfinals. Jankovic will be playing in her first grand slam semifinal later this week.
Men's seventh seed Nikolay Davydenko was leading number-17 Andy Murray 6-1, 5-7, 6-3 when their fourth-round match was suspended. Marat Safin and number-14 Tommy Haas had played just three games in their fourth-rounder before rain caused their match to be postponed until today.
