WTA Nottingham 2016 matches on Saturday, June 11 - Rain postpones quarter-finals to Saturday

Suneer Chowdhary in News 11 Jun 2016
Can Karolina Pliskova shrug off the bad Nottingham weather?

The quarterfinals and the semi-finals of the 2016 WTA Nottingham are scheduled to be played on Saturday, June 11 after all matches had to be cancelled on Friday due to rain.

Top seeded Czech Karolina Pliskova will play Australian qualifier Ashleigh Barty in the opening fixture of the day at the centre court and their fixture will be followed by the quarterfinal between Saisai Zheng and Tara Moore, the British qualifier.

Over on Court 1, fourth seeded Puerto Rican Monica Puig is slated to take on Tamira Paszek of Austria in the first fixture. This match will be followed by the final quarterfinal between Alison Riske and Anett Kontaveit.

The winner of the match between Pliskova and Barty will take on the winner of the fixture between Puig and Paszek later at the centre court in the first semi-final. The match will only happen after suitable rest has been provided to the players.

This will be followed by the second semi-final between the winner of the contest between Riske and Kontaveit and whoever edges the contest between Zheng and Moore.

A long day of tennis awaits us at Nottingham on Saturday. However, there is a distinct possibility that some of the matches may have to be moved to Sunday with rain forecast for the day.
