The 2012 U.S. Open is underway at Flushing Meadows. The big story of the day so far has been rain, which has held up play for about three hours. Everyone will probably be in catch up mode the rest of the day.
The highest seed to move on is Olympic gold medalist Andy Murray, who glided past Alex Bogomolov Jr. in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, 6-1. James Blake has had the most success of the Americans, besting Lukas Lacko of Slovakia, 7-5, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.
There are two players with Bay Area connections that get underway later today. Mallory Burdette and Nicole Gibbs both went to college at Stanford, and they're set for matches to play later in the day. Burdette faces Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland on Court 6 after the conclusion of the first match on the court (currently Tim Smyczek and Bobby Reynolds are in a fifth set), and Gibbs faces Alize Cornet of France right after Burdette on the same court after Burdette's match ends.
