French Open quarterfinals, semifinals rescheduled after washout


The French Open’s remaining quarterfinal matches were postponed to Thursday after rain washed out play Wednesday. Women’s semifinals, originally scheduled for Thursday, will now be on Friday.

Wednesday’s quarterfinals (four total matches featuring Americans Madison Keys and Amanda Anisimova and top-ranked Novak Djokovic) will now start at 6 a.m. ET on Thursday with the women’s matches going first on Court Philippe-Chatrier and Court Suzanne-Lenglen.

The last two men’s quarterfinals will follow on the same courts.

Now, all four men’s and women’s semifinals will be played Friday.

The rainout will force the women’s finalist from the top half of the draw — No. 3 Simona Halep, No. 8 Ashleigh Barty, No. 14 Keys or Anisimova — to play three straight days with the women’s final on Saturday.
