2/18/2011 - Tennis

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Rain washed out play at the Copa Claro clay-court tournament Friday, forcing organizers to schedule both the quarterfinals and semifinals for Saturday.

Only one quarterfinal got started Friday. The match between No. 4 seed Albert Montanes and No. 8 seed Juan Ignacio Chela was suspended in the third set at 3-all.

The three other quarterfinals will be played early Saturday -- Nicolas Almagro vs. Jose Acasuso, David Nalbandian vs. Tommy Robredo and Juan Monaco vs. Stanislas Wawrinka -- with the semifinals set for the evening.
