Italian Open final now Monday
The match had been scheduled for Sunday afternoon but will now take place midday Monday. Fans jeered the decision after sitting in stands under umbrellas for several hours.
Heavy rain has been falling for most of the afternoon in Rome, and the women's final between Maria Sharapova and Li Na was delayed for two hours earlier in the day. Sharapova went on to win 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5) as the rain persisted.
