NEWPORT, R.I., July 7 (UPI) -- Heavy rains washed out play Tuesday at the $500,000 Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in Rhode Island before any of the matches could be completed.
Three matches had started but did not have time to finish. When play was suspended, Sebastian Grosjean was leading seventh-seed Kevin Jim 6-4, Germany's Philipp Petzschner led Argentina's Horacio Zeballos 6-4, 3-4 and Samuel Groth of Australia was leading Ricardo Mello of Brazil 7-5, 0-3.
Two-time defending champion Fabrice Santoro was scheduled to play Tuesday but never got started. Top-seeded Mardy Fish withdrew earlier to take Andy Roddick's place on the U.S. Davis Cup team.
