Unexpected Darkness Phenomenon plagues Estoril Open – Games Delayed!

Milos Raonic's match against Gilles Simon was delayed until late this afternoon due to rain.  After it began, it was postponed due to darkness with Milos about to serve at 5-6.  Although the players are on serve, each player has been broken once thus far, with Milos saving 0/1 break points and Simon saving 1/2.

The Milos Raonic (CAN) versus Gilles Simon (FRA) quarter-final match will resume tomorrow, 12 noon GMT, or 7 am Eastern Time on Court 1. It's unclear whether Sportsnet will be airing the matches this early, but their website states they will be showing the semi-finals tomorrow, starting at 3 pm Eastern.  Best thing to do is check all their channels out at 7 am tomorrow.  If they aren't carrying it, find a stream on the internet or check out the live score ticker available here.

If Milos wins his quarter-final match against Simon, he will face the winner of the Verdasco / Anderson match at 4 pm local (11 am Eastern Time) on Central Court.  The Verdasco / Anderson match which will be resuming at 12 noon local time in Portugal as well on "Centralito".  Verdasco had just enough time to lose the first set in a tiebreak before darkness caused the postponement of that match as well.
