Rain Pushes Boys 16s & 18s First Round to Wednesday

--Bradenton FL--

In addition to reporting for zootennis.com, I'm also working the results desk at the Eddie Herr and today's rain has caused some serious rescheduling and cancellation of the 12s mixed doubles. I'll probably be confined to writing in the wee hours if at all, so I thought I'd post now, while the courts are drying.

Card playing is one of the most popular rain-delay pastimes, although here at IMG Bollettieri's indoor courts, watching Nick coach runs a close second. Yesterday Nicole Vaidisova drew numerous spectators, as she practiced (not with Nick) backhands on an indoor court, while the sound of rain nearly drowned out the kaplunk of ball on racquet.
