Nadal and Gonzalez Play Before Hundreds

The USTA is worried that impending rain might interrupt the Rafael Nadal-Fernando Gonzalez match, so the two players were rushed onto the court tonight. As you can see, it’s not that easy to get a New York crowd filed into a stadium by 7:08 p.m., the revised start time of tonight’s match, about a half hour ahead of schedule. Thousands are filing in right now, but it is strange to watch these guys play for the right into the semifinals in an empty stadium.
