Johanna Konta through to quarter-finals after downing Dominika Cibulkova in Cincinnati

Johanna Konta through to quarter-finals after downing Dominika Cibulkova in Cincinnati”

Czech defending champion Pliskova led Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi 3-0 when play was suspended while former and future world No. 1 Nadal and compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas never started their third-round match before the final drenching began. The tournament's No. 4 seed beat American Madison Keys 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (3) to extend her successful summer.

A runner-up in 2015 and semi-finalist last year, Halep advanced to the Cincinnati quarter-finals for a fifth successive year.

Since beating Venus Williams for the Wimbledon title, she has reached the quarterfinals of her last three tournaments.

Johanna Konta awaits in the quarters following her 6-3 6-4 win over Dominika Cibulkova.

"I obviously had some unforced errors that I wasn't happy about, but I felt like I had to go for it because she was just going to make everything", Keys said.

"I actually didn't mind that rain delay at all", Isner said of the longer break. "I can say that I'm not playing my best tennis in this moment, but winning, even if I play less good, I think it's a big plus for me". American tennis player Serena Williams tops the list, as her earnings between June 2016 and June 2017 of Dollars 27 million from prize money and endorsements are twice the total from any other female athlete in the world, according to Forbes. Halep trailed 4-2 in the opening set against Latvia's 15th-seeded Sevastova, who was aiming to take a set off the Romanian for the first time in their last four meetings.

The top ten continues with tennis players Garbine Muguruza - USD 7.7 million, Caroline Wozniacki - USD 7.5 million, Agnieszka Radwanska - USD 7.3 million, Eugenie Bouchard - USD 7.1 million, and Simona Halep - USD 6.2 million. She wasted another match point before Muguruza took it to the tiebreaker and dominated.

Nadal was assured of advancing past injured Andy Murray for the top spot when Roger Federer withdrew from Cincinnati with a back injury. He faces Spaniard David Ferrer in the quarter-finals.

The Spanish fourth seed came through 6-4 3-6 7-6 (7-3) to set up a quarter-final against Russian eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, who beat Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2 6-4. The seventh-seeded Dimitrov got his first career win in six matches against Del Potro. "I really needed that match".
