Here Comes the Rain Again
It's like clockwork. The U.S. Open Series reaches it's grand finale, and meteorological heck breaks loose all over the Northeast. The Pilot Pen tournament in New Haven was washed out today by consistent rain, providing what Racqonteur knows is but a preview of the waterlogged hours to come during the U.S. Open fortnight. A quick glance at the 10 day forecast for Flushing Meadows has more than a few instances of "scattered thunderstorms" and "showers." Ugh. Memo to the USTA: Time to get really high-tech and build one of them newfangled things that keep the wet out. What's that called again? Oh, yeah, a roof!
