Stay on the headline

So while Dan Evans is supposed to furiously chomp on a piece of banana, it’s a reminder that after this match is tonight’s headline: Emma Radocano and the Blasters. Which is what I call 100 percent as a band name. This is mine, you can’t have it. It’s also a small homage to, as we are in Washington, the famous DC punk scene. Let’s hope that Raducanu opponent Lyudmila Samsonova has bad brains and is just a minor threat to the US Open champion.

01:03 AM

Evans will have to do it the hard way

Jimmy Johnson Reports: Nishioka takes a 7-5 tiebreak and lets out a mighty roar. The Briton shakes his head in frustration, realizing that he should have finished the job much earlier.

12:52 AM

Evans in the first set tiebreak

Jimmy Johnson Reports: Evans raced a 40-15 lead in the first game after the start of the second half but fell back into the devil after finding the net at the end of Rally with over 20 shots.

He took advantage of the match but not the match as Nishioka hit a backhand on the field and out of his reach.

With two aces, Nishioka took over the match and there is now a tiebreaker in the first set. 6-6.

12:39 AM

Dan Evans is back on the field

Jimmy Johnson Reports: Dan Evans is back on the field with a crucial match against Yoshihito Nishioka – who was on serve – coming up.

The temperature has dropped but is still 23 degrees Celsius in Washington, and fans flock for what appears to be a long evening session.

12:32 AM

The gowns were free on my day

Regulators in the capital are rushing to offer patrons assistance – including charging them $5 for a coat. Which seems a bit naughty.

12:28 AM

Play to resume

Good and bad news. The good news is that play is set to resume very soon, which means Emma Raducanu could be on the field soon.

The bad news is that the deluge has washed away Rob Bagshi and instead left you with me, Josh White, to take over tonight’s live blogger duties, which is the equivalent of a kind of muddy after-rain remnant.

Officials are checking the stadiums and we are minutes away from resuming play.

Meanwhile, Dan Evans awaits a return to John A. Harris Stadium, taking a 6-5 lead in the first half against Yoshihito Nishioka. At the conclusion of that match, it will be Emma Raducano against Ludmila Samsonova.

The Lord gives

11:32 PM

better news

Jimmy Johnson Reports:

Note from the organizers: drying up the courts. Matches will resume soon.

Dan Evans resumes a 6-5 lead in the first set against Yoshihito Nishioka in the quarterfinals of three sets. Emma Raducano vs. Lyudmila Samsonova will follow to complete that match. Josh White will be here to lead our coverage whenever that match starts.

11:19 pm

Long day trip to night

Jimmy Johnson Reports from Washington, DC

The rain has eased in Washington as the temperature is still 23 degrees. The staff works hard with rollers in the stadiums, to clean up the surface water.

There is still plenty of tennis to come this evening, with Dan Evans, Emma Radocano and Nick Kyrgios all expected to be out on the court if the weather continues.

The organizers are prepared to come in as late as possible this evening to complete the matches.

11:14 pm

Good news – the storm has passed

10:51 PM

Another update from the organizers

It is still raining and there is no chance to play before 11:30pm UK time. But if it continues tonight, we’ll cover it up. It might not be me… but the World Telegraph team will be blogging the match from the other side of the pond.

10:19 pm

But fear not – The Telegraph has a reporter on the ground

Jimmy Johnson Reports from Washington, DC

More bad news from Washington DC as play will not resume before 6pm local time. This is 11pm in the UK. The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning in the area.

The player lounge is across from the media center so I can happily report that after the lightning shots were taken, Raducanu retired inside for a hot drink.

10:19 pm

Another ad

No play before 11pm GMT. It’s hard to see the conditions because this is what happens when it rains on Amazon, who don’t have regular reporters and studio/presenters but only have matches, because he shuts down the live stream and treats us to this:

still raining

at the William HG FitzGerald Tennis Center and there will be no play until 10:30 PM GMT at the earliest. Since the Nick Evans match isn’t over before Raducanu and Samsonova start, we might be into a long evening.

Jimmy Johnson Reports from Washington, DC:

I just got a message from the tournament organizers that there will be no play before 5:30pm local time (10:30pm UK time).

09:43 PM

There may be a big delay

Jimmy Johnson Reports from Washington

Dan Evans was winning the first set of a Citi Open quarterfinal against Yoshihito Nishioka 6-5…and then came the storm.

Play is now suspended in Washington, DC, where the temperature is still 32 degrees, but with dark clouds in the sky.

Emma Raducano is in the player’s lounge talking to her teammates, but it doesn’t look like she’ll be on the field any time soon. The heavens have just opened.

08:45 PM

Good evening

18 years after Helter Skelter, Ringo Starr famously shrieked: “I’ve got blisters on my fingers.” It is not recorded how the Beatles overcame this agonizing scourge of all manual laborers – the surgical spirit? monk balm? elastoplast? A dose of calamine lotion? Myths? There are a myriad of ‘cures’ for the complaint that could come in handy for Emma Radocano who bravely came through in her second-round match against Camila Osorio last night, taking 165 minutes to win 7-6, 7-6, with a cuff that was straight. From an exorcist. Plenty of old and new treatments but will any of them work in time?

Tonight, she faces Russia’s Lyudmila Samsonova, ranked No. 28 in the world, who, had she retained her Italian citizenship, would have been allowed to play at Wimbledon this year, rather than being banned, as she reached the fourth round in 2021 as a substitute, just like Raducanu. She has a great serve and is content to stick to the baseline to exhaust her opponents with powerful ground kicks. Raducanu usually tries to maneuver it from side to side before unlocking one of these…

Having said that, she says she feels comfortable surviving yesterday’s ordeal with her sore hand in the sweltering heat. “For me it was a pretty massive effort to really get past that,” Raducanu said on Thursday.

“There were a lot of moments in both sets where you wanted to go for the easy option to try to finish the point early, but, yeah, I’m really happy and proud of the way you went in when it really mattered.

“It’s been three hours on the court, and I’ve really warmed up for an hour this morning. That gives you a lot of confidence in a match like this.”
