Kia ora, good morning and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the ASB Classic men's tournament at Auckland's Stanley Street.

Weather continues to be the story of the week, with rain wreaking havoc on the schedule yesterday and promising to do the same again on Thursday.

Third seed Diego Schwartzman had to retired injured in his opening match on centrecourt, while Belgian David Goffin had a nasty spill in the wet, before heading indoors to continue his progress through the draw.

Second seed Cam Norrie took more than five hours between rain breaks to dispense with his opponent, eventually finishing the job indoors, while top seed Casper Ruud had his debut delayed several times, before also heading under the roof, and then bowed out on the stroke of midnight.

As the draw enters the quarter-finals, organisers have again scheduled a full day of matches outdoors, but prepare for that to change, as the weather develops. 

The clash between veterans Goffin and Frenchman Richard Gasquet may prove the most intriguing encounter on offer.

Today's order of play is:


Noon start

Marcos Giron (USA) v 2-Cam Norrie (UK)

1pm start

Jenson Brooksby (USA) v Quentin Halys (France)

Richard Gasquet (France) v David Goffin (Belgium)

7pm start

Laslo Djere (Serbia) v Constant Lestienne (France)

Jerome Chardy (France)/Fabrice Martin (France) v TBC

Grandstand Court

11am start

Alexander Erler(Austria)/Lucas Miedler (Austria) v Sebastian Baez (Argentina)/Luis David Martinez (Venezuela)

Noon start

Nathaniel Lammons (USA)/Jackson Withrow (USA) v 4-Jamie Murray (UK)/Michael Venus (NZ)

1-Nikoa Mektic (Croatia)/Mate Pavic (Croatia) v Maximo Gonzalez (Argentina)/Andres Molteni (Argentina)

Sander Gille (Belgium)/Joran Wliegen (Belgium) v 2-Marcel Granollers (Spain)/Horacio Zeballos (Argentina)
