Storms starting in Washington D.C.. Looks Sunny and Clear where I am, and they are not calling for storms in my area tonight which is a change in the forecast.

I don't know if this still goes but if they can start one match they don't have to refund tickets for the night session.

Then you can bet your butt they are going to try and do that.

It isn't raining where I live, but I live in the Northern part of Maryland. Looking at the forecast for Southern Maryland, Washington D.C., and Northern Virginia, it is supposed to rain until at least 8 p.m. tonight.

Because of all the suspended matches currently in Washington D.C., Tennis Channel Pus added a Pickleball match to its coverage right now.

I tell ya something, the weather changes really quickly. In my area there was supposed to be no rain tonight, but now it seems the Washington D.C. is on the doorstep here. It is starting to thunder and the wind is picking up. A storm is coming soon here.

Frances Tiafoe storms back in the tie breaker against Nick Kyrgios to take the first set 7-6.

Frances Tiafoe had his shot in the second tie break serving for the match and he could not get it done. Nick Kyrgios took the 2nd set tie breaker and they head onto what will most likely be a 3rd set tie breaker.

Kyrgios took the 2nd set in a back & forth 14-12 tiebreak... then put the 3rd set away rather quickly 6-2.

Meanwhile, Raducanu lost in straight sets to Samsonova 6-7, 1-6.

I am not sure if I am happy, because he has been such a petulant player throughout his career. But, when he plays at the level he can achieve, he is an incredible sight to see. I am, of course, unable to watch any of the matches (I am in Caracas right now and they are showing nothing), but I will follow your assessment and agree than when he plays seriously, and decides to stop the "magic" shots, he is simply a top 5 player, at a minimum.
He should have been in the slam conversation for a long time; let's see if he can deliver "later" in his tennis life.
