American Melanie Oudin will play former top-ranked player Jelena Jankovic of Serbia in the rain-delayed Aegon Classic final after both players won quarterfinal and semifinal matches Sunday. The final at the grass-court warmup for Wimbledon will be Jankovic's first in 10 months. She beat Misaki Doi of Japan 6-3, 6-4 in a quarterfinal that took three days to finish because of rain. She then rallied to beat China's Zheng Jie 6-7 (2), 7-5, 6-1. Oudin defeated Irina Falconi 6-4, 5-7, 7-5 in an all-American quarterfinal and then rallied to down eighth-seeded Ekaterina Makarova of Russia 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. The final will be staged on a Monday for the second year in a row.
