US Open live streaming has been interrupted by another rain delay. Those watching US Open live streaming are staring at a blank screen, during the second US Open final rain delay. Yesterday, the final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic never got off the ground, due to steady rain. Today, Nadal and Djokovic got started, and were about to head for a turning point in their match, until bad weather struck again. Now, the US Open live streaming won’t resume until the rain delay ends, which may be no earlier than 7:30 pm.
Starting at 4:30 pm est, CBS finally showed the start of the men’s final, while CBS Sportsline and the official Open website broadcast it online. It took a day, but Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic finally took the court for the last match of the tournament.
However, a rain delay sent them off again, meaning that the US Open live streaming has been halted as well. What’s more, for those who are watching the match on TV, it will be moved over to ESPN 2 when it does resume. The rain and lightning also delayed the start of the Jets-Ravens kickoff by 25 minutes.
As of now, it appears the earliest that things can get under way is 7:30 pm, according to Fanhouse. Once play resumes, US Open live streaming will resume on CBS Sportline and the Open site. However, if the rain continues, those watching online will have to go back on tomorrow for the end.
The men’s final has been held on a Monday for the last two years, but they had been able to get done on a Monday. But this new rain delay could push things, since Nadal and Djokovic are near the end of the second set.
Those who logged onto the US Open live streaming sites saw Nadal jump out early to a 6-4 opening set win. Yet Djokovic rallied back, much like he did against Roger Federer, for a 4-1 second set lead. However, Nadal was making a rally himself, and evened the set at 4 with a chance to break Djokovic again and take control.
Once the rain delay started, the two were even at 4-4, and at 30-all in the crucial tiebreaking point. If Nadal wins that point, he will serve for the set and have a chance to take total control for the championship. But if Djokovic holds, and takes the second set after all, it will be the first real setback for Nadal in this tournament.
This men’s final is at a crucial point, where it could be destined to go the distance, or end early in favor of Nadal. If the weather cooperates, fans might still get to find out what the answer is tonight. If all goes well, US Open live streaming will resume online within the hour, and come onto ESPN 2 as well.
