Men’s French Open Final Suspended Until Monday

Mike Hewitt/Getty Images Sport

Going into Sunday’s French Open Men’s Championship, we knew one of the two finalists was going to make history.

Either Rafael Nadal was going to win his seventh straight French Open title, or Novak Djokovic was going to win his fourth consecutive Grand Slam title, something that hasn’t been done since 1969.

Fans of tennis will have to wait one more day to see which man gets it done.

Rain in Paris forced postponement of the title match, with Nadal leading two sets to one and trailing 1-2 in the fourth.  The two men played under drizzle most of the day and sat through a 34-minute delay in the second set.

The momentum had shifted prior to the stoppage of play.  Nadal had won the first two sets, 6-4, 6-3, but Djokovic, trailing 0-2 in the third set, won six straight games to take the third set and won the first two games in the fourth set.  Nadal held on his serve before play was stopped for the second time.

The match will resume at 6am, Central time tomorrow.
