French Open 2012: Rain Again Delays Great Match Between Nadal And Djokovic

The rain continues to pour on the clay courts in Roland Garros as a second rain delay has been enforced in the French Open final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. Nadal, who's pushing for his seventh consecutive French Open title, is up two sets to one on Djokovic.

Before play was suspended, Djokovic had time to counter and win the third set in convincing fashion 6-2. In the fourth set, Djokovic did well in keeping the momentum and won two of the first three games over Nadal. With a 2-1 lead in the fourth, the rains came and the umpire called for the match has been temporarily suspended.

The constant rain has made the clay court quite sloppy, and tournament officials seem keen on focusing on player safety and the integrity of the game. We'll have more as it comes to us from Roland Garros.
