Club AliBey experienced rough tennis weather last night and all day today. The red clay courts (60 of them!) dry very fast, but it's tough when it doesn't quit raining. Surprisingly, we did get to begin our tie today against South Africa even though we started three hours late -- and we were able to finish both singles matches. We won them both.
Then the bottom fell out again, so the doubles match has not been played due to rain. The weather is still iffy (and iffy is optimistic) for tomorrow. However, if it's nice and we can begin play at 9 AM, we will play our tie against Canada. If we can complete that, the doubles from our tie today against South Africa will follow the entire tie against Canada.
Only one other USA team was scheduled for action today and that was the 60s women's team. They, too, are in exactly the same situation as we are. If the weather is nice, all ten teams will play tomorrow.
