Marina Erakovic doesn’t have the best of luck with weather at the Olympic Games.
Erakovic, New Zealand’s sole representative in the tennis events at London, had her first-round singles match against Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak postponed today 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 tomorrow.
In Erakovic’s Olympic debut, at Beijing in 2008, her first-round match against Japan’s Ayumi Morita was postponed for two days because of rain before Morita eventually won a marathon encounter 5-7, 7-6, 6-4.
