Birmingham -The Aegon Classic final between Sabine Lisicki and Daniela Hantuchova has been postponed until Monday after persistent rain showers prevented play.

Organisers waited for seven hours Sunday for the weather to improve before postponing the match until 11 a.m. on Monday.

Lisicki is looking for her second career WTA title, and was given a wild card for Wimbledon earlier on Sunday. Lisicki made the Wimbledon quarter-finals in 2009, but is still trying to regain her best form following a five-month injury layoff that saw her drop out of the top 200 in the rankings.
