  1. Play called off for the day


    And that is your lot.

    The organisers have thrown in the towel, the mop, the bucket and the dehumidifier.

    All play has been called off for the day and the only winner on day two of the Fever-Tree Championships is the not-so-great British weather.

    See you tomorrow when, hopefully, things will be a little less soggy.

  2. Only two matches remain

    The Queen's Club organisers have admitted defeat on almost all fronts.

    British number one Kyle Edmund's match against Stefanos Tsitsipas has, along with all but two other matches, been postponed until tomorrow.

    The only two matches to survive the weather, in theory at least, are Stan Wawrinka's meeting with Dan Evans and France's Lucas Pouille's match against Evans' compatriot Jay Clarke.

    Play to begin, well the latest guess was 17:00 BST, but that clearly is not going to happen...

  3. In Birmingham

    Naomi Osaka

    The rain is creeping north into the Midlands to interrupt going-ons at Birmingham.

    But not before world number one Naomi Osaka dispatched Greek world number 33 Maria Sakkari 6-1 4-6 6-3.

    British number four Harriet Dart got on the court but has had her campaign ended by Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva 6-1 6-4.

  4. Rain, rain, rain

    Queens' umbrella

    Rightio, things are not looking like drying up any time soon.

    The covers on Queen's Club centre court are slowing being inflated which is an indicator that the officials are expecting them to be in place for a considerable time yet.

    They might be looking at the same forecast that we are. The probability of rain is above 70% for the next three hours according to the BBC weather forecast.

  5. No play until 16:30 BST

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    Spectators at Queens

    A very enticing order of play is slowly being juiced of time and excitement.

    The latest is that play will not start before 16:30 BST after that brief and aborted attempt to get the fuzz out of the can 20 minutes or so ago.

  6. Covers back on!

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    The weather gods were merely teasing us.

    After flashing a cheeky bit of emerald turf at us, the Queen's Club court-coverers are scampering back out to pull the tarpaulin back across.

    Tick followed tock followed tick followed's to waiting.

  7. Covers off!

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    Stand by your beds!

    The Queen's Club groundstaff have thrown off the duvet and we could be about to see the first shots in anger at the tournament today.

    Somewhere in the bowels of the clubhouse, Dan Evans and Stan Wawrinka are dusting sandwich crumbs off their shorts and limbering up...

  8. Play at 15:45 BST?

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    View more on twitter

    There has been another update from the Fever-Tree Championships weather watchers.

    It sounds touch and go for some play around 15:45 BST.

    Watch this space. Or go and watch another space for a half-hour or so...

  9. No play until 15:00 BST

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    Queen's Club

    And still the rain hammers down like a John Isner first serve...

    No play until 15:00 at the earliest.

    And Queen's Club air traffic control have rejigged the runways for today's play...

  10. Post update

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    View more on twitter

    Well, this is frustrating.

    That light blue tarpaulin is going to the only thing appearing on court at the Queen's Club for the foreseeable.

    Dan Evans and Stan Wawrinka are free to go and get a meal deal. (Dan picks a flapjack and juice along with his sandwich, Stan going for some sort of smoothie nonsense and a carrot and houmous pot)

    See you at 14:30 and not before.

  11. Over in Birmingham

    Julia Goerges

    A quick shout-out to sunny Birmingham though where play is up and running.

    Naomi Osaka is on court later, but so far there has been a win for Petra Martic, while Julia Goerges and Dayana Yastremska are into a deciding set.

    Live scores over here.

  12. No play until 13:30 BST

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)


    The wait goes on.

    The umbrellas are still up. If anything, the rain has got heavier.

    No play until 13:30 BST. If we are lucky...

  13. While we wait

    While we twiddle our thumbs, may I point you this way of this excellent illustrated account of Andy Murray's last competitive outing at the Australian Open in The Nib.

    Murray begins his competitive comeback with a knock in the doubles alongside Feliciano Lopez tomorrow.

  14. No play until 13:00 BST

    No everyone in the stands is bothering with a brolly, but it must be a little drizzly out there because there are a fair spattering still unfolded.

    No play until 13:00 BST is the latest from the referee's office.

    Where's Sir Cliff?

  15. Order of play

    Wawrinka v Evans (rain delay)

    Let's see what you could have won.

    This is today's order of play on Centre Court:

    Stan Wawrinka v Dan Evans

    Juan Martin del Potro v Denis Shapovalov

    Stefanos Tsitsipas v Kyle Edmund

    Grigor Dimitrov v Felix Auger-Aliassime


    Fever-Tree rain delay
  16. Weather forecast

    Wawrinka v Evans

    Weather forecast

    It is not looking too clever for the rest of the day in west London.

    The covers will be on and off more than a Love Island relationship today I fear.

  17. Rain delay

    Wawrinka v Evans

    Alas, just as Wawrinka and Evans were flexing and stretching backstage, the rainclouds above Queen's Club spilled their payload and the covers were dragged across the courts.

    Last year they would have been watering...

    No play until 12:30 BST at least...

  18. Up and running

    Wawrinka v Evans


    Dan Evans


    Dan Evans

    Queen's Club, London?


    The Dan Evans summer of silverware tour pulls into its latest stop in west London at the Wimbledon warm-up with the hottest opposition.

    His first-round opposition is suitably tough. Three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka is a blue-chip 24-carat copper-bottomed customer.
