Pliskova, fighting to hold off Romania's Simona Halep at the top of the rankings, first ousted Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi 6-3, 4-6, 6-0 in one of five matches postponed from due to rain.

'Of course everybody is destroyed in Spain, including me, ' Nadal said in a post-match interview after the game.

Nadal got only halfway there. 22-year-old Kyrgios had defeating hard-serving 6-foot 11-inch Ivo Karlovic of Croatia 4-6 7-6 (6) 6-3.

Kyrgios said Nadal's presence helped galvanise his concentration, conceding the quality of opposition occasionally dictated whether he tanked or not.

"I have just been going through a load of s***, sorry for cussing, but a load of stuff that's distracted me from just trying to play some tennis, and hopefully I'm just trying to get on the right track again". "For me, it's an incredible achievement".

He wore black ribbons during an earlier match in tribute to the victims of twin vehicle ramming attacks in Spain that left 14 dead.

Now, Panthers fans are letting the team and everybody else in the world know how exactly how they feel about it on social media. Carolina and Tennessee will meet for the third time in preseason history, with the Panthers holding a 2-0 advantage.

'(It's) a tragedy, the feeling that you are not safe.

"So [I'm] just very sad. To all the victims, the families, friends - all my support". At age 35, Ferrer is the second-oldest semifinalist in Cincinnati during the Open Era behind Ken Rosewall in 1970.

With Nadal out, this will be the first time since 2012 that neither Nadal, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray made it to the semifinal of a Masters 1000 event. Bulgaria's 11th-ranked Grigor Dimitrov plays American John Isner in Saturday's other semifinal.

Kyrgios was up a double break in 10 minutes, seizing the chance to make a between-the-legs showoff shot on his way to a 4-0 lead, drawing boos from the crowd.

In the women's bracket, Pliskova will face Garbine Mugaruza in the semifinals.

Nadal, however, found another gear when he erased three break points to even that set at 2-2 and then proceeded to win the final four games to win in an hour and 38 minutes.

"To beat Dominic in straight sets, and then - who did he beat the round before that?"

"The day is just like a blur", Stephens said.

"I recover well, so definitely I will be ready", she added.

"A kid playing Nadal on center court, that's where your best has to come out", Kyrgios said. I don't know. The humidity, still don't like this ball. I could move well. "He kind of just keeps me grounded a little bit".
