The women’s UTR Pro Match Series has been canceled due to bad weather conditions without announcing an official winner.
After women played 5 out of the 6 matches in the group stage of the UTR Pro Match Series the organizers were forced to cancel the competition due to the bad weather. Alison Riske led the ranking with Ajla Tomljanovic and Danielle Collins having 1 victory and ongoing match.
Collins and Tomljanovic should have finished their match as the winner will face Riske in the final. After the match was suspended already on day 2, it was also not possible to finish it on day 3. The statement said:
“We have made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of the UTR Pro Match Series due to heavy rain and a flood warning here in West Palm Beach.”
“Thank you to the staff, officials, and our friends at Tennis Channel for helping make this event possible. And a huge thank you to the incredible players who brought their A games to the UTR Pro Match Series. What a way to bring back live sports! It’s been a fantastic 2 weeks of tennis, thank you for tuning in and supporting the game we all love.”
