Read the official statement from Rogers Cup organizers on the weather-delayed championship match between Martina Hingis and Ana Ivanovic.

MONTREAL (AP) -- Ana Ivanovic of Serbia advanced to the final of the Rogers Cup with a rain-interrupted 6-1, 6-4 victory over Dinara Safina of Russia on Sunday.

The players completed a match that was suspended due to rain on Saturday night with Ivanovic leading 6-1, 3-4. More rain fell Sunday and the match resumed more than five hours later than scheduled in chilly, windy conditions with only a few hundred fans left in the stands.

Ivanovic will meet former world No. 1 Martina Hingis of Switzerland in the final, which was postponed until Monday because of weather.

Hingis won Saturday when opponent Anna Chakvetadze of Russia retired in the second set with a strained right forearm.
