Sania Mirza's opening singles match against French Aravane Rezai was put off to Tuesday after unexpected showers abandoned play at Melbourne Park on Monday.
Rain delayed the start of play on the outside courts on the opening day of the Australian Open. The only matches to start on time were on the covered main show courts at Rod Laver Arena, where Russian Maria Kirilenko knocked out No.14 seed Maria Sharapova.
Sania and 26th-seeded Rezai were to play on court six. Theirs is now the first match at show court two, slated for local time 1100 hrs Tuesday.
It is the third meeting between Sania and Rezai. They are 1-1 with Rezai winning their previous meeting at Madrid last year.
