French Open 2012: Men's Title Match Suspended Due To Rain

The Men's Final match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic was interrupted by rain in the fourth set, causing the conclusion of the match to be pushed back to Monday at 1 p.m. local time at Roland Garros (7 a.m. ET).

Nadal stormed out to take the first two sets, 6-4, 6-3, but Djokovic would not go quietly. After catching fire to take the third set, 6-2, Djokovic held a 2-1 lead before the rains became too much for the match to continue. It will be interesting to see if he can continue with the momentum, or see Nadal finally slam the door.
