Rain delays Wimbledon play for Erakovic

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 29/06/2016

Marina Erakovic's second-round match against former world No.1 Jelena Jankovic at Wimbledon has been delayed by rain.

Some matches on the third day were completed before the weather halted play, but Erakovic's court 14 battle with the 22nd-seeded Serbian never got on court.

World No.153 Erakovic won a marathon first-round struggle against 75th-ranked American Irina Falconi 4-6 6-3 10-8 to set up the second round clash.

It's Erakovic's first appearance in the main draw of a grand slam this year after an injury-plagued period of inactivity saw her ranking slip.
