ROME – Heavy rain caused Sunday’s eagerly anticipated Rome Masters final between defending champion Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal to be postponed until Monday.

“The conditions for play are not suitable. The final is postponed until Monday at 1500 (1300GMT),” said tournament director Sergio Palmieri.

Earlier, the women’s final had been interrupted for over two hours due to the rain before Maria Sharapova successfully defended her title by beating Li Na 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (7/5).
