: Is a match ever postponede becase of high wind?A
: Yes Joe, The rules of tennis do allow for play to be supended due to high wind. Rule 29 Role of Court Officials states that, "A Referee can at his or her discretion may at any time postpone a match on account of darkness, or the condition of the ground, or weather" This is also allowed under the USTA rule I.M.7. In fact at this years Pacific Life Open at Indain Wells, CA. play was suspended on the outer courts for about 1 hour due to high wind and blowing sand. Play resumed after the wind died down and the courts were cleaned of sand.
