MONTREAL (AP)  -- The rain-soaked Rogers Cup has again postponed its singles finals, although the doubles players moved indoors to get their semifinal matches played Sunday.

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark and Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia started their match after a four-hour delay on Saturday. Wozniacki led 2-0, 0-15 before rains came again and wiped out play for the day. Victoria Azarenka and Vera Zvonareva never got to play a point.

More rain fell Sunday but organizers still hoped to get the two semifinals played.

Flavia Pennetta and Gisela Dulko defeated Monica Niculescu and Shahar Peer 6-2, 3-6 (10-4) in doubles, while Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik downed Anabel Medina Garrigues and Yan Zi 7-5, 1-6 (10-6) before a crowd of about 100 people.
