Roll on the Barty Party.

Thought she was gone after blowing a 5 nil lead in the first set and losing it in a tie break. Good fight back admittedly against a less experienced opponent.

And on the men's side, Rafael Nadal has beaten Roger Federer in straight sets (6-3, 6-4, 6-2) to make the final for the 12th time.

The men's 2nd SF was controversially suspended and will resume 3 hrs before the women's final. They say that should be enough time for the women's final to start on time, but what if there's more bad weather?

Djokovic, who looked like he was not handling the wind, has been accused of unfairly influencing the decision to suspend play.

Thiem has the break!

And he consolidates for 4-1. Two games away from a spot in the final.

...

But now a rain break! It's getting close to the women's final scheduled starting time. I think it will start late now, even if the rain clears.

Thiem finally wins! After 4hrs 13mins spread over two days, in a match full of drama. In the final stretch there were three consecutive breaks of serve.

The delayed women's final is coming up.

Echoes of her SF: Barty races to a 4-0 lead, but faces break points.

She gives back one of the breaks. 4-1.

At 5-1, Barty serves for the first set.

Two set points. She converts the second. 6-1.

Odds: Barty 81%, Vondroušová 19%.
