Nick Wass/Associated Press

With the tennis world preparing for the U.S. Open at the end of August, many of the WTA and ATP's top stars are in Washington D.C. for the Citi Open tournament.

Weather did turn out to be a problem, as rain caused two separate delays in play. It created havoc on the playing schedule, but all of the matches were able to be completed as darkness set in.

Top 10 players Kei Nishikori (No. 5) and Marin Cilic (No. 8) are the male headliners on the second day of competition, while Ekaterina Makarova was in action as the top seed on the women's side, as is defending champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.

One thing known for sure is that there will be a new men's champion, as last year's winner Milos Raonic is still on the sidelines with a foot injury.

Notable Results

The first upset of the day saw seventh-seeded Coco Vandeweghe losing in three sets to unranked Christina McHale.

Making this exit more disappointing for Vandeweghe is it was her first WTA event since Wimbledon, at which she made a career-best run to the quarterfinal.Yet this has been an unfortunate pattern for the 23-year-old throughout her career.

Ben Rothenberg of theNew York Times noted the inconsistency with which Vandeweghe played:

Yet that seems to be a pattern for Vandeweghe. She entered this tournament with a 15-14 record in 2015, so a loss Tuesday seems perfectly fitting for how her season has gone.

One woman who had no such issues was Samantha Stosur. The No. 2 seed in this tournament breezed byKristina Mladenovic, 6-2, 6-2, en route to earning her 500th career victory. She put an exclamation point on the win with this ace, per the Citi Open's official Twitter:

Stosur is finding a rhythm in these smaller events, winning theWTA Nurnberger Gastein Ladies two weeks ago and following that up with a dominant win against Mladenovic.

The 31-year-old Stosur is no longer at the height of her tennis power, but she is still capable of doing good things whenever she steps on the court. It'd be a surprise to see her win another major title, though her greatest professional triumph did come at the U.S. Open in 2011.

There was drama for American Sam Querrey, who had to fight off a valiant effort from Go Soeda in three sets. This marks the first tournament since June's Nottingham Open that he's made it to the third round in an ATP Tour event, though he did get helped here with a bye in the first round.

Querrey's serve was on point for most of the victory, as he fired 26 aces. That was mitigated slightly due to seven double-faults, but Soeda only managed two aces of his own.

On the men's side, even though Tuesday didn't provide as much drama with upsets, things will ramp up Wednesday when top seed Andy Murray takes the court for the first time looking for his third singles title of the year.

As long as the weather doesn't cause too many problems moving forward, Wednesday should be a good day to separate the contenders from pretenders at the Citi Open.
