NEW YORK (AP) - Water seeped up onto a court at the U.S. Open for the second straight day but the match didn’t have to move this time.

The start of a women’s doubles semifinal Friday on the Grandstand was delayed briefly while officials took care of the problem. Andy Roddick’s match against David Ferrer in Thursday’s quarterfinals was moved to tiny Court 13 because water was gathering on the surface of the court in Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Fourth-seeded Americans Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond went on to beat Daniela Hantuchova and Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets to reach the finals.

Radwanska said Huber noticed a bubble about the size of a dinner plate behind the baseline during warmups.

The U.S. Open was deluged with rain Tuesday and Wednesday.
