The Heineken Open has been hit by its first rain break of the week with rain forcing the players from the courts early on day three.

Rain was a constant throughout the women's ASB Classic, with the final of both the singles and doubles played indoors.

American wildcard Ryan Harrison was leading eighth seed Philipp Kohlschreiber 3-2 in their match on centre court with both players securing a break of serve.

With blue sky on the horizon, play is expected to resume shortly. The forecast, however, is for rain or showers over the next three days.
