    Newport, RI (Sports Network) - Inclement weather forced the cancellation of both semifinal matches Saturday at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships.

    Nicolas Mahut and Michael Russell played just three points in their semifinal matchup before the heavy rain came down and suspended play on the grass courts at the International Tennis Hall of Fame.

    Mahut and Russell will resume their match at 10 a.m. (ET) Sunday on Court 1, while the semifinal between two-time reigning champion John Isner and former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt will be played at the same time on Center Court.

    After the completion of the semifinal session, the stadium and grounds will be cleared before the final gets underway at 2 p.m. as scheduled.

    The winner of this $520,000 event will claim $78,000.
