Australian Open: Play delayed on outside courts by dust and mud following rain

Play was delayed on the outside courts at the Australian Open on Thursday because of the dust and mud that came down during a rainstorm in Melbourne on Wednesday night.

The courts had to be power-washed with organisers saying the start would be delayed by three hours on most of them.

Play eventually began on courts three and 19 but rain then forced a suspension until nearly 04:00 GMT.

After the rain stopped, five courts had still not started by 05:00.

Matches began as scheduled at 00:00 on the three courts with a roof.
