Heavy Rain Interrupts Italian Open Play

ROME – Heavy rains in Rome postponed Wednesday’s Italian Open, in which Swiss tennis pro Roger Federer and Spanish star Rafael Nadal were to make their debut.

The Foro Italico courts have been covered and the tournament organizers will give an update every half an hour to inform the press and spectators when play will resume.

“At the moment matches are postponed at 12:30 pm. Stay tuned for further information from the Tournament Direction,” the tournament posted to its official Twitter account.

“The matches will not start before 1:15 pm,” it later said.

Federer was going to open the program at center court against Portuguese Joao Sousa, but heavy rain, which is expected to continue until night, delayed the match.

Also, the matches of Spanish Garbiñe Muguruza against Danielle Collins of the United States and Spanish Carla Suarez against French Alize Cornet were postponed.

The eight-time Rome champion Nadal is set to take on Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the second round at the center court.

On Tuesday, rain interrupted the match between defending champion Elina Svitolina of Ukraine and the Belarusian Victoria Azarenka several times.

After play was suspended for more than an hour, Azarenka eliminated her opponent to win 4-6, 6-1, 7-5.
