Tsonga and Pliskova in action as racquets replace raincoats at Eastbourne Tennis week - in pictures
The clouds cleared, the covers were removed - and play could finally start on Tuesday as the action resumed at Eastbourne's Devonshire Park.
After Monday was totally washed out, the start of the action was delayed on Tuesday while the groundstaff finished the big dry-up after all the rain and there were plenty of stars to see. Jay Clarke, Karolina Pliskova, Alistair Gray, Harriet Dart, Elina Svitolina and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were among playters glad to get out of the dressing rooms and into the action. See the best of Tuesday's pictures on this page and the ones linked.
