Rain Washes Out Most Matches at US Open; ITF Grade 1 International Hard Courts Videos and Photos

Very few matches were completed today at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadow, with all but three of the US Open's first-on matches on outside courts unable to finish, and the rest postponed until Wednesday. With the roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium now, those matches have proceeded uninterrupted, with Americans Madison Keys and Frances Tiafoe scheduled to take that court tonight.

Kalamazoo 18s champion Patrick Kypson was down a set and break to qualifier Adrian Menendez-Maceiras of Spain, with the match not on a court being streamed.  Kypson will be on the same court for the completion of his match, one of 29 Americans on the jam-packed Wednesday schedule.  Below are the Wednesday matches featuring Americans, with asterisks for those who are playing second round matches.

============================================

With my Tennis Recruiting Network recap of last week's ITF Grade 1 International Hard Court Championships scheduled to come out early Wednesday, I would normally wait to post the photos and videos then, but with not much tennis today, I'm putting them up now.

Below are the You Tube videos of the champions. Click on their names to see videos of Coco Gauff and Axel Geller.
