The Indian men's doubles pairs will have to wait before taking the tennis court at the Wimbledon as their first round match of the London Olympics were postponed due to rain in London on Sunday.

Leander Paes and Vishnu Vardhan were set to take on Dutch pair Robin Hasse and Jean-Julien Rojer while Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna were pitted against Max Mirnyi and Alexander Bury of Belarus.

India's men's singles player Somdev Devvarman had his match stalled mid-way through against Finland's Jarko Nieminen. Somdev was down 3-6, 0-1 when the match was stopped.

Vardhan was also set to take on Blaz Kavicic of Slovenia in the first round. Vardhan got a lucky place in the men's singles draw replacing German Philipp Kohlschreiber who pulled out of the Olympics with a hamstring injury.
