Daily update – Friday 23 June

A frustrating day here in Ilkley as a fine rain lingered for most of the day putting a hold on the quarter final matches due to take place in both draws.

We were awarded an all too brief hour of play on grass mid-afternoon and Australian Sam Groth wasted no time in his match against American Bjorn Fratangelo taking the first set 7-6, the second set sits tied 2-2 and will resume tomorrow.

In the women’s draw Maryna Zanevska (Belgium) leads Marina Erakovic (New Zealand) 5-3.

One result from the women’s doubles semi final which tool place indoors saw Anna Blinkova (Russia) & Alla Kudryavtseva (Russia) win out against Petra Martic (Croatia) & Andrea Petkovic (Germany) 7-6, 6-4.

Play is due to resume tomorrow (Saturday), at 10.30am.
