Nadal led 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 1-2 after 3 hours of play when the day’s second rain delay sent the players to the locker room. About an hour later, the suspension until Monday was announced, with a start time of 1 p.m. (7 a.m. EDT).
Monday’s forecast predicts intermittent rain.
The French Open hasn’t been pushed past the final Sunday since 1973, when Ilie Nastase beat Nikki Pilic in a match that ended on Tuesday.
