UPDATE: Rain continues; all junior matches cancelled for the day
With persistent rain since 10 a.m. here at Wimbledon, there have been no matches played as of 3 p.m. Saturday. The junior schedule has been reduced to eighteen matches, but the most anticipated first rounder--No. 1 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia versus Portuguese prodigy Michelle Larcher de Brito--is still on the schedule.
U.S. players still on the schedule are Mallory Cecil, Melanie Oudin, Gail Brodsky and Kellen Damico. I'm hoping to see at least some of those four matches.
The referee's office has already announced that there will be no play on Sunday, the traditional day of rest that is unique to Wimbledon, despite the rain.
The ITF has posted its Wimbledon junior preview here. For more coverage of the Wimbledon junior championships, see collegandjuniortennis.com.
