It was yet another fustrating day in New York at the US Open 2011. Day 10 was rained out, but there was at least 10 minutes of play. In those 10 minutes the worlds top players started their fourth round matches, but they weren’t very happy with tournament referee Brian Earley.

Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Andy Roddick vented their frustrations at having to play on slipper courts!

“We don’t want to go on court if it is raining,” Nadal told ESPN.

“If I have to go on court, I go on court, but I think it’s not fair.”

Murray stated:

“It’s dangerous. The lines get really slippy. Players want to play more than anyone, but not when it’s dangerous,” he said.
