DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) - Organizers for the Family Circle Cup released a revised schedule of the day's scheduled matches, the fourth of the day.

According to the most recent plan, Swede Stefanie Voegele will face off against Germany's Julia Goerges some time after 6 p.m., weather permitting, on Center Court.

After 7 p.m., Eugenie Bouchard and Sam Stosur are slated to play followed by a doubles match between Andrea Hlavackova and Liezel Huber and Hao-Ching Chan and Olga Govortsova.

Jelena Jankovic's match with Jessica Pegula has been moved to the Althea Gibson court and will start close to 6 p.m.

Rain has been a persistent problem Thursday at the tennis facility. Former champions Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki were slated to play in the morning, but rain has delayed Williams' match. Wozniacki is the only player to advance today after her opponent dropped out.

Another match between Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Madison Keys has been pushed back multiple times and is now off the schedule.
