EASTBOURNE, ENGLAND (AP) - Rain washed out semifinal play at Eastbourne on Friday, with all women’s and men’s matches rescheduled for Saturday.

The tournament will attempt to complete all four semifinal matches, with the finals to follow.

In the women’s event, Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic is to play Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia and Sam Stosur of Australia will face Marion Bartoli of France.

The men’s semifinals pits Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia against Kei Nishikori of Japan and Igor Kunitsyn of Russia against Andreas Seppi of Italy.

Despite a forecast of showers throughout the day, tournament officials want to complete the event on Saturday to allow players to prepare for Wimbledon.
