Rafael Nadal was just one point from securing the second set over Roger Federer before a sudden rain suspended play. When the rain fell for the first time in this tournament, Nadal, 5-4 and just two points from taking a commanding two-set lead going into the third set of the Finals at the 2011 French Open.
It does not appear the rain will last long so hopefully play will resume soon.
The delay gives Roger Federer a chance to regroup after already having been broken four times in this match.
