Tornado delays Djoko clash
David Ferrer and Novak Djokovic to continue on Sunday

Play had to be suspended for the day in the second US Open men's semi-final between David Ferrer and Novak Djokovic due to a tornado warning at Flushing Meadows.
The Spaniard was leading 5-2 in the opening set and just about to serve for the set when the Arthur Ashe Stadium had to be evacuated, with the match scheduled to resume at 4pm UK time on Sunday.
Andy Murray's last-four clash with Tomas Berdych earlier on Saturday was delayed for the same reason before the Scotsman finally won a four-set clash in extremely windy conditions.
The women's final between Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka had already been put back until Sunday at 9:30pm BST as tournament organisers attempted to work through the backlog of matches.
But conditions worsened later on Saturday, leading to players, officials and spectators being ushered away for their own safety, with the men's final postponed until Monday, where the action is due to get underway at 9pm UK time.
Murray will therefore benefit from an extra day's rest before attempting to claim his first Grand Slam victory.
