Rain denies players chance to complete women's UTR Pro Match Series

Players and organizers patiently waited on Sunday in West Palm Beach, before ultimately deciding weather was not on their side.

Stay tuned to this page throughout the day for live updates on the matches, along with on-demand replays, video highlights and photography from West Palm Beach.


2:55 p.m. ET: Play Canceled For Good

Unfortunately, the remainder of the event will not be played out as a result of the day's downpour and impending weather.


1:52 p.m. ET: No Change In Forecast

There are little signs that point to rain letting up. Encores from prior matches at the event will continue to air on Tennis Channel as everyone patiently stays put.


12:07 p.m. ET: Consolation Match Called Off

We're not at Roland Garros, but the unforgiving skies certainly give off a feel of spring in Paris. As a result of ongoing rain, there will be no third-place match today, meaning Amanda Anisimova's weekend is completed. The remaining competitors will continue to play the waiting game.

Steve Weissman, Lindsay Davenport, Chanda Rubin and Jon Wertheim will provide live updates on Tennis Channel as they become available, and replays from earlier in the event will be aired.

11:38 a.m. ET: Update From The Site

Rain continues to fall in the area. In order for the championship to be contested, the match between Danielle Collins and Ajla Tomljanovic must be completed to determine who advances to meet Alison Riske.

The likelihood of the third-place match being played decreases the longer the event is delayed.

11:05 a.m. ET: Rain Delay 

Rain hampered the conclusion of Saturday’s final clash at the UTR Pro Match Series and looks to be an obstacle again Sunday in the West Palm Beach area. Riske awaits the winner of the match that has been carried over between Collins and Tomljanovic. Just before play was suspended, Collins, on her seventh set point, leveled the contest at 3-4 (4), 4-3 (6), to keep her hopes of playing in the championship alive. The player on the losing end will meet Anisimova in the third-place consolation match.

NOTE: Due to inclement weather, Tennis Channel will not air the finish of Collins and Tomljanovic as its start is delayed. Stay tuned here and on Twitter for updates as they become available.
