    A rain delay Wednesday ate up most of the afternoon at the U.S. Open, postponing eight women’s singles matches.

    With the storm bearing down, video monitors around the Billie Jean King Tennis Center warned fans to seek shelter and avoid trees because of potential lightning, though thousands of ticketholders were milling about without much concern for severe weather.

    Here’s a gallery of images from the tournament.
