WASHINGTON, July 31 (UPI) -- Andrea Petkovic ousted No. 6 seed Mona Barthel Wednesday in the only women's match completed before rains suspended play at the Citi Open in Washington.

Three other matches were postponed until Thursday, including one between top-seeded Angelique Kerber and Melanie Oudin.

Olga Puchkova, who surprised second-seeded Sloane Stephens in the first round, also had her meeting with Paula Ormaechea postponed.
