But it is still possible, isn't it? I thought 99% of all tennis courts are built with the ends on North/South, so if you were playing on the North side of the court when rain halted the match, you'd still play on the North side of the court when play resumes, be it a different day, different court, different facility (or all three). Right?
This is the way we did it when our match got called in the middle of the 2nd set at a recent club tournament. We resumed two weeks later and on a different court, albeit the same facility. We picked up right where we left off:
Opponents serving at 3-4, 15-15 (though we did start the point over as we ran off the court after a first serve fault). They were serving from the South side of the court when we halted and resumed their service game from the South side of the court.
