Canada’s Milos Raonic will have to wait at least one more day before making his Olympic debut at the London Games.

His first-round men’s singles match was postponed Sunday afternoon due to rain.

Raonic, the world No. 25 from Thornhill, Ont., was scheduled to play 69th-ranked Tatsuma Ito of Japan.

Only a handful of first-round matches started Sunday before wet weather rolled in at the All England Club. When play continued, Spain’s David Ferrer defeated Vasek Pospisil of Vancouver 6-4, 6-4.
