BOCA RATON, Fla. (March 6, 2014) – Florida Atlantic men’s tennis match against Xavier was cancelled due to weather. The start time for the match was moved up one hour and started at 1 p.m. in an attempt to play the match before bad weather moved into the area. The teams agreed to play a 4-1 format to squeeze in as many matches as possible. A 4-1 format plays four singles matches and one doubles match simultaneously, instead of the normal six singles matches and three doubles matches. A lighting warning was issued about halfway through the first set and players were sent indoors. After about an hour delay the teams agreed to cancel the match.
Here are the scores as they stood before play was stopped:
