Happy New Year! Weather Continues to Pose Problems at USTA Winter Nationals 14s and 12s in Tucson, Semifinals Set for Sunday at 18s and 16s in Lake Nona

Happy New Year everyone, especially those are at the USTA 14s and 12s Winter Nationals in Tucson. Wind, rain and temperatures in the 40s were an unwelcome beginning to 2022, and with the tournament already a round behind due to bad weather, it's not clear what the schedule will be for Sunday and Monday, although the weather forecast is much improved.
