Day Nine of the US Open has been declared a washout, with the rain that hit the New York area on Tuesday morning and lasting well into the day prompting officials to cancel the whole day's play.

28833 - Play washed out for day at US Open

Rain arrived overnight and set in pretty quickly. The radar picture suggested a window may appear around 2pm local time (7pm UK time) but that has since closed - prompting officials to cancel play for the day.

Andy Murray was scheduled to open up play on Arthur Ashe Stadium against Donald Young and it remains to be seen how organisers reshuffle play.

The weather is not forecast to be great on Wednesday and another major delay would likely force the final grand slam of the year into a third week.
