New York: Defending champion Rafael Nadal and world number four Andy Murray were among the stars left in limbo on Tuesday as rain washed out all play at the US Open.

Nadal - no stranger to weather disruptions after repeated delays prolonged his path to completion of a career Grand Slam here last year - had been scheduled to face Luxembourg's Gilles Muller for a quarter-final berth.

Murray had been set to open play on the Arthur Ashe Stadium against Donald Young at 11am, but about 2 1/2 hours after that officials of the US Tennis Association announced they were cancelling both the day and night sessions.
