Torrential rain has forced the cancellation of play at the ATP Croatia Open on Saturday with both semi-finals and the doubles title match pushed back until Sunday.

Defending champion Tommy Robredo of Spain will face 2012 winner Marin Cilic of Croatia while top seed and 2013 runner-up Fabio Fognini of Italy faces Argentine qualifier Pablo Cuevas.

Cilic is bidding to extend his 15-match win streak at home in Croatia and is 3-2 in previous meetings with Robredo.

Fognini is competing in his fifth semi-final of the year against Cuevas, who is currently riding an eight-match win streak following a title run on the clay of Bastad two weeks ago.
