WTA Birmingham quarterfinals washed out

Tennis

The four quarterfinals at the Birmingham grass court tournament were cancelled for the day due to rain on Friday.

Two Czech players are scheduled to compete, with eighth-seeded Marie Bouzkova facing Coco Vandeweghe of the United States, and Tereza Martincova taking on fourth-seeded Daria Kasatkina of Russia.

Second-seeded Ons Jabeur of Tunisia faces Anastasia Potapova of Russia, and third-seeded Donna Vekic of Croatia is up against local favorite Heather Watson.

Vandeweghe, a former top 10 player, reached two Grand Slam semifinals in 2017 and twice has been a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon.

She earned her first tour-level, main-draw victory in nearly two years on Monday by beating Kristyna Pliskova in straight sets.
