London's weather forced the postponement of the New Zealand tennis player Marina Erakovic's first round singles match at the London Olympics.

Erakovic, New Zealand's sole representative in the tennis events at London, had her singles match against Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak postponed because of intermittent rain.

The match looms as a close one - Erakovic has a world ranking of 46th and Wozniak 54th.

It is scheduled to be played on Monday.
