The featured night match was supposed to have been played between Caroline Wozniacki and Annika Beck, but it had to be canceled because of a familiar Charleston-in-April occurrence:
There was a bad thunderstorm and hail, and this, even after Jelena Jankovic was out of the tournament!
2016 runner-up and 4th seed Elena Vesnina also departed today, upset by qualifier Fanny Stollar in two tiebreak sets. Stollar, incidentally, hit thirteen aces.

Gavrilova and Kasatkina played their first round of doubles today, too, and lost to 2nd seeds Andrea Hlavackova and Sania Mirza.
