French Open: Rain-made hurdle, today's will be quarterfinals

Paris: On Wednesday due to heavy rain, no match was possible on the Clay Court of the French Open and today's quarterfinal match will now be played on Thursday. Organizers said that tickets will be refunded on Wednesday matches and viewers can see tomorrow for free.

As per the information received from the sources, all the courts were covered due to heavy rains and the organizers announced the cancellation of the day's match by not seeing the possibility of the game. The tournament organisers said that the visitors who have five June tickets can reach the free Roxan gards tomorrow but they will have to show their valid ticket. On Wednesday, there were two quarterfinals matches of the men's and women's category, including world number one Novak Djokovic of Serbia and the match of defending women's champion Simona Halep.

According to the information, these quarterfinals will now be played on Thursday. Earlier on Tuesday, Petra Martinch of Croatia was defeated by 7-6, 7-5 in a hard-fought battle in Marketta Wondrosova, the Czech Republic, to enter the semifinals of the women's singles. Martich was playing in the quarterfinals of a grand slam for the first time in his career but he could not go beyond it. Wondrosova won the match in two hours. He won the first-set tiebreak with 7-1 and the second set 7-5 to make it to the last four. Vondrosova will take on Britain's Johan Konta in the semifinals, who beat last-runners-up Sloane Stephens of the United States in consecutive sets of 6-1, 6-4 in a lopsided fashion.
