Rain Cancels Play on Monday in Macon
MACON, Georgia, (October 26, 2015) Eight qualifying matches were cancelled on Monday, all second round qualifying matches in the Tennis Classic of Macon, a USTA Pro Circuit event taking place October 25 – November 1, 2015.
Nina Stojanovic, a 19-year old from Serbia ranked No. 287 in the world is the top seed in the qualifying draw.
Qualifying draw notables include former Wimbledon and U.S. Open doubles champion, Vania King, who posted an early qualifying win on Sunday morning with a 7-6 (5) 6-1 victory over Alyona Sotnikova of the Ukraine. King has only played a few events since being out of action for 12 months with a herniated disc in her neck. University of California player Maegan Manasse and young American players, Ingrid Neel and Michaela Gordon are also in the qualifying draw.
“We were about five minutes from playing in the early afternoon,” said tournament director, Eric Hayes. “But the rain sprinkles came back and we couldn’t get the courts dry enough, so we had to pull the plug for the day.”
Play will take place on seven courts to start Tuesday.
