ATP Queen's: Del Potro, Wawrinka, Tsitsipas, Dimitrov to play on Wednesday

For the first time since 2012, the entire day at the ATP 500 event at Queen's was canceled due to rain on Tuesday, with the remaining ten first round encounters moved to Wednesday. The prestigious event has kicked off on Monday with beautiful weather and only six singles encounters scheduled, with the defending champion Marin Cilic, Diego Schwartzman, Daniil Medvedev, Nicolas Mahut, Gilles Simon and Kevin Anderson moving into the last 16.

The rest of the field was supposed to plat on Tuesday although the rain had some other plans, ruining the entire day and sending the packed action to Wednesday when the weather should be at least a little bit better. The organizers will try to complete all ten first-round clashes on three courts and Thursday should deliver another great day, with all eight second-round matches scheduled for the fourth day of the event to get everything back according to the original plan.

On Centre Court, Juan Martin del Potro and Denis Shapovalov will kick off the day on Wednesday in what should be one of the matches of the tournament if they both show their 'A game.' After them, the three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka takes upon Daniel Evans who claimed back-to-back Challenger titles on grass in the last two weeks, hoping for more of the same on the ATP level against Roland Garros quarter-finalist.

Things should only get better, with Stefanos Tsitsipas battling against Kyle Edmund and another thrilling duel between a former champion Grigor Dimitrov and the young gun Felix Auger-Aliassime. On Court 1, Marton Fucsovics, Feliciano Lopez, Jay Clarke, Lucas Pouille, Marco Cecchinato, Milos Raonic, Nick Kyrgios and Adrian Mannarino will chase the spot in round two and we should hope for at least decent weather and all ten matches completed without troubles.
