Rain Delays Canadian Open Tennis

August 7, 1998

TORONTO (AP) _ Rain throughout Thursday forced postponement of the day’s schedule in the du Maurier Open tennis tournament.

Only three games were played all day and Yevgeny Kafelnikov won them all in taking a 3-0 lead over MaliVai Washington.

A light, intermittent rain delayed the afternoon session and it was raining more heavily Thursday evening when officials scrapped the schedule.

The highlight match of the day was to have been 10th-seeded Goran Ivanisevic against No. 8 Andre Agassi.

Twelve singles and doubles matches were affected.

The forecast for Friday called for rain giving way to late-morning clearing.

The makeup schedule calls for winners of delayed third-round matches to play quarterfinal matches Friday night.
