4/20/2008 - Tennis

MONTE CARLO -- Only one of four singles
matches was completed at the Monte Carlo Masters Series on
Sunday before rain stopped play for the day.

German Nicolas Kiefer beat Marin Cilic of Croatia 3-6, 7-6,
6-3 in a first-round match but organizers then called it a day.

Former French Open champion Carlos Moya, scheduled to play
after Kiefer, is now due to face American Sam Querrey on Monday
although rain showers are again forecast in the principality.
