Roland Garros
Singles - Final: (2) Rafael Nadal leads (1) Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-2, suspended
It didn't take Rafael Nadal long to strike. He broke in the very first game of the match. And the third. And then -- Novak Djokovic broke back. It was starting to feel as if it would be a long day. Especially since play had to be halted with Nadal up 6-4 5-3.... (It was drizzly for most of the match; there probably would have been no play at all on a hardcourt.) Nadal came back to go up two sets to none, then 2-0 to start the third set -- when suddenly Djokovic truly came to life, winning eight of the next nine games. Then, up a break at 2-1 in the fourth set, play was again halted. (This weather, incidentally, has been forecast to interfere with play at Queen's on Monday.)
With the sun going down, they finally gave up. The rest of the final will take place on Monday. It will be interesting to see if Nadal plays Halle after this....
