Rain washes out 1st day at Birmingham grass-court

  •  

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) - The first day of the Birmingham women's grass-court tournament was washed out by rain Monday without a point being played.

Former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone of Italy is the top-seeded player at the Aegon Classic, which serves as a warmup for Wimbledon.

Sabine Lisicki is the defending champion, although the German has played only three matches and lost all three since retiring because of an ankle injury against Serena Williams in April.
