Play washed out in Houston


Players were unable to take to the court on Tuesday as rain washed out an entire day of tennis at the US Men's Clay Court Championship.

All 13 first-round singles and doubles ties were cancelled before a ball was hit in Houston.

Spanish fifth seed Fernando Verdasco was among the players frustrated by the weather, unable to take on Kevin Anderson at the ATP Tour 250 event.

That match will take place on Wednesday, along with others, including sixth seed Feliciano Lopez facing Bjorn Fratangelo.
