Wheelchair tennis opens at the US Open: on court and off the court

As rain pounds the tristate area this morning, yesterday's action in wheelchair tennis may be the newest update. You can find results at usopen.org

And wheelchair tennis was in the courts this week- not the tennis court, but a real court. A NY judge ruled that a filmmaker who is making a film about wheelchair tennis players couldn't shoot video of the wheelchair tennis competition.

The filmmaker, Alan Rich, argued he should be allowed to do so because matches aren't aired by TV stations.

UPDATE: More results and details about the players can be found in this article.
