Severe weather and power outages wreak havoc at Winston-Salem Open
- 23 Aug 2019
No matches were completed as severe weather washed out the Winston-Salem Open quarter-finals on Thursday.
Bad weather and power outages at the ATP 250 tournament meant the last-eight clashes were pushed back to Friday in North Carolina.
Only one match got underway, with top seed Benoit Paire leading 11th seed Pablo Carreno Busta 4-3 in the first before it was suspended.
The pair will return to complete their quarter-final, while second seed Denis Shapovalov is due to face Andrey Rublev – who stunned Roger Federer at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.
Weather and power outages have cancelled play on Thursday, August 22.
Gates open at 10:30am on Friday, and matches begin with doubles at 11am.
We will release the full order of play as soon as it becomes available.
