The entire Olympic tennis programme was wiped in Rio on Wednesday with torrential rain and high winds making play impossible.

‘It’s not like just the heavens have opened, but hell too.’ said an official.

Spain’s Rafael Nadal who is still in contention for medals in the Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles events may be the most affected.  Nadal had played five matches in three days prior to the Wednesday downpours and will need to play three matches on Thursday.

    I don't think that's Dustin, but Rafa was out practicing in the rain yesterday. No photo, but somewhat ill-advised? Anyway, it worked for him. #workethic
