  1. - - Next up for Zheng Jie will be Carla Suarrez Navarro, a winner over another American Coco Vanderweghe before all the rain hit earlier in the day. Women's drawsheet.

  2. - - WILLIAMS 3-6 6-2 6-7(5) - GAME, SET & MATCH! Huge disappointment for Venus Williams as she battles back not only in the final set but also in the tie-break before slipping on the penultimate point up at the net while going for a forehand volley. The American former champion had the point won, all she had to do was put the ball in play but instead she slipped to hand Zheng a match point. And Zheng took it, Venus going long with a forehand to end things.

  3. - - There's a bit of a debate going on over on Louis Armstrong court about whether to suspend play or continue on. All the other courts have been stopped but Venus has just battled back from 4-2 down to 5-all in the final set and is keen to continue, understandably.

  4. - - WILLIAMS 3-6 6-2 - SET! Venus has hit back against Zheng over one Louis Armstrong, two breaks of serves getting the job done for the American - an ace and an unforced forehand error from Zheng ending things.

  5. - - WILLIAMS 3-6 - SET! Over on Louis Armstrong, Venus Williams is going to have to battle back from a set down if she is to continue her progress at this year's tournament. China's Jie Zheng has taken the first set, albeit with just the one break.
