    Brussels, Belgium (Sports Network) - Rain wiped out Tuesday's schedule at the $690,000 Brussels Open, a final clay-court French Open tune-up.

    Fourth-seeded American Sloane Stephens was supposed to finish her darkness- suspended match against Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova, but that affair will now move in to a third day on Wednesday. The bout was tied at 6-3, 2-6, 2-2 when play was called Monday night at Royal Primerose Tennis Club.

    The 10 opening-round singles matches on Tuesday's schedule will have to be completed on Wednesday, a day in which the second round was supposed to wrap up.

    This week's top seed is reigning champion and former world No. 1 star Caroline Wozniacki. The Dane beat Chinese Peng Shuai in last year's finale.

    The 2013 Brussels titlist will earn $120,000.
