Defending champion Alexander Zverev reaches Citi Open final

Defending champion Alexander Zverev reaches Citi Open final

The Scot is due to play Alex de Minaur of Australia in the quarter-finals later on Friday.

"I also need to be careful and to listen to my body as I come back from a long- term injury".

The extraordinarily late finish to his match with Copil gave him little time to recover for his quarter-final and in the aftermath he voiced his annoyance at the scheduling, hinting that he may withdraw to preserve his exhausted body.

Murray's third-round victory over Marius Copil ended just past 3 a.m. on Friday, after rain delayed the start of Thursday's action for 2 1/2 hours. The No. 10 seed Tsitsipas beat No. 3 David Goffin 6-3, 6-4.

Murray's match against Romanian Marius Copil did not finish until 03:00 local time on Friday morning and the three-time grand slam victor has also pulled out of the Rogers Cup as he eases himself back to full fitness following hip surgery in January. "I don't know how players are expected to recover from that", Murray said after the Copil win.

"Finishing matches at 3 in the morning is not good".

At 21, Zverev was the oldest player in the semifinals along with the 19-year-old Tsitsipas and de Minaur and 20-year-old Rublev.

After Murray's announcement, O'Brien said she expected Murray would return next year.

She has spent a grand total of 322 days in space including a stint commanding the space station and performing seven spacewalks. Victor Glover is from Pomona, California. "As a test pilot, it doesn't get any better than this", said Mann, a Naval aviator.

The Washington event starts midweek men's matches typically not before 4pm, a nod to past complaints by some of having to repeatedly play in the heat of the day while bigger names had cooler conditions at night.

He will add a third in Washington if he can continue his form at the tournament where his overall record stands at 15-2.

"I do understand 3 a.m.is very hard for everyone", O'Brien said. By the end, there were 100 or so fans in the main stadium at the hard-court tuneup for the US Open.

Third-ranked defending champion Alexander Zverev took bragging rights in his sibling rivalry, beating 15th-seeded older brother Mischa 6-3, 7-5 in their first ATP meeting.

On the women's side, two-time Grand Slam victor Svetlana Kuznetsova was to face Kazak eighth seed Yulia Putintseva for a semi-final spot.

After the final point, Murray went to his chair, buried his face in a towel and wept, sobbing at times, and kept his head down and face covered as he exited the court.

The frustrations included Murray leading the first-set tie-breaker 5-0 only to drop the next seven points and the set.
