RAIN at Wimbledon

Updated:
(Wimbledon, England-AP) -- Rain didn't allow much tennis Saturday at Wimbledon.

The women's final between defending champion Venus Williams and Belgium's Justine Henin is postponed until Sunday.

So is completion of the men's semifinal between Goran Ivanisevic and Tim Henman. Ivanisevic and Henman waited over four and a-half hours to resume their match today after play was suspended yesterday. They were on court for 53 minutes, long enough for Ivanisevic to win one set and even the match at two sets apiece.

They're on serve in their fifth set, with Ivanisevic up 3-games-to-2.

The executive director of the All England Club says the men's final probably will be played Monday, but officials plan to talk with Ivanisevic, Henman and Patrick Rafter before making that decision.

The last time an extra day was added to Wimbledon was 1988.
