Intermittent rain in Colombo has left tennis administrators and players frustrated as they are unable to complete their ATF Under-14 Week One tennis series by today.

The officials have now shifted the matches to be played on hard courts and even shortened a set to just four points with the intention to finish sooner than expected.

The second week of the tournament is expected to start tomorrow (4).
