Roland Garros—Paris, France
The French Open men’s final—which was led 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 1-2 by Rafael Nadal over Novak Djokovic—will resume at 1 PM local time in Paris on Monday because of rain.
After losing the first two sets, Djokovic stormed back to win eight games in a row over the six-time winner. A second rain delay at approximately 7:05 PM halted the historic final between the No. 1 and No. 2 players in the world.
Djokovic is attempting to become the first player since 1969 to win all four grand slams in a row, while Nadal is vying to break Bjorn Borg’s record of six titles.
Monday’s forecast in Paris also calls for 60 percent of showers.
