Granby, Quebec – Rain disrupted play on Day 3 of the Granby National Bank Championships, forcing multiple postponements in both the women’s and men’s matches. Despite the gloomy weather, the ATP Challenger was eventually able to begin its main draw, with three matches completed in singles. On the women’s side, they had to cancel a handful of bouts, and only one singles and one doubles match had a final score line.

Parrizas Diaz clinches first spot in quarters, Kasatkina four points away from joining her

After winning her opening-round match 6-2, 6-1, Spaniard Nuria Parrizas-Diaz kept her momentum going in her round-of-16 contest, soaring past Brit Harriet Dart 6-2, 6-4 to reach the quarter-final. Parrizaz-Diaz played a solid match from start to finish and showed up in key moments, saving 13/15 break points and converting on five of her 11 opportunities. The 31-year-old Spaniard will have to wait another day to find out who she faces next, as the match between tournament top-seed Daria Kasatkina and Poland’s Magdalena Frech was postponed in the second set. Kasatkina led the match 6-4, 5-0 before the umpire was forced to pause the contest due to inclement weather. The winner of the match will face Parrizas-Diaz. In doubles, the only match winner on Tuesday was the duo of Nadiia Kichenok (UKR) and Tereza Mihalikova (SVK) in doubles. The tournament’s fourth seeds defeated the all-Canadian pair of Cadence Brace and Marina Stakusic.
