NUREMBERG, Germany (AP) - Rain disrupted play at the Nuremberg Cup on Monday, with Mona Barthel the only player to progress on the second day.

The German defeated Paula Ormaechea 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 despite an interruption of almost four hours in the first set due to rain.

Other matches, including defending champion Johanna Larsson’s opener against two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, were all postponed to Tuesday.

No.3 seed Ajla Tomljanovic’s match against Sabine Lisicki was also put back.
