The USTA are currently holding their US Open Wild Card Playoffs. The first day of the playoffs were called off due to rain and will continue again today.

Three first-round matches were halted in progress after approximately 45 minutes of play with the following scores:

Tennys Sandgren (5) leads Rhyne Williams (4) 3-2

Ashley Weinhold (2) leads Madison Keys (7) 4-3

Nicole Gibbs (8) leads Julia Cohen 6-0, 1-0

“We had the option to move the matches indoors, but we really want to complete the tournament outdoors weather permitting,” said Lew Brewer, USTA US Open Wild Card Playoff tournament director. “If rains hits Friday, the matches will be moved indoors and throughout the weekend if necessary. We have decided to move our semifinals to Saturday and our finals to Sunday.”
