Sania's 1st round match rescheduled

January 18, 2010 17:32 IST

Sania Mirza will have to wait till Tuesday to start her Australian Open campaign as rains forced postponement of her first round match in Melbourne on Monday.

The Indian ace was scheduled to play the third match at the court number six against French 27th seed Aravane Rezai at Melbourne Park.

Now she will play the first match of the morning at the same court.

Sania comes into the season-opening Grand Slam after playing warm up events in Auckland, New Zealand and Hobart.

Sania is the only Indian competing in the singles main draw of the hard court Slam as Somdev Devvarman, Prakash Amritraj and Yuki Bhambri failed to get into the men's singles main draw.
