The weather turned poor today; lots of rain, thunder and lightning in Umag.I got stuck at the club within sight of my hotel for 30 minutes after watching the end of a match (delayed by rain at 5-6, deuce in the third set of the deciding doubles…Finland ended up beating Austria), by lightning). It was windy too. The USA men’s 60s team has to wait for Canada and Sweden to finish their 2nd singles and possibly doubles before they can play their QF match tomorrow. Weather is iffy tomorrow early, then better later.
