SEVILLE, Spain -- A second straight day of rain has forced more delays to the Fed Cup match between Spain and the Czech Republic.

The World Group first round series will now continue Monday with Spain leading 1-0. Earlier Sunday, Czech Klara Zakopalova led the second singles match against Maria Torro-Flor 6-3, 2-0.

Weather permitting, the teams will also play reverse singles and a doubles match if necessary on the red clay court on Monday.

Rain and strong wind in Seville caused a four-hour delay before Carla Suarez beat Barbora Zahlavova 6-1, 6-4 to give Spain the only point of the match so far.
