HOUSTON -- Martin Alund of Argentina wore down Lleyton Hewitt of Australia 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 on Wednesday in the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships before rain washed out the rest of the day's schedule.

Play was suspended at 2:47 p.m. at River Oaks Country Club after continuing rain left the clay courts too wet to continue.

Top-seeded Nicolas Almagro of Spain and No. 2 Tommy Haas of Germany had their matches rescheduled for Thursday.
