2012 French Open, Djokovic vs. Nadal: Men's Championship Suspended, Will Resume Monday

We will have to wait one more day to determine a winner for the 2012 French Open men's championship. Novak Djokovic, the world's highest ranked player, and Rafael Nadal, ranked No. 2 in the world, met on Sunday morning for the title at Rolland Garros but the match was suspended after a little more than three sets.

The two players will supposedly resume at 7 a.m. EST on Monday morning, but rain is in the forecast most of the day. After NBC showed the start of match this morning, the final sets will be played on NBC Sports Network.

As for what has happened to this point, Nadal leads after three sets. He took the first set 6-4 and the second set 6-3 in convincing fashion. Djokovic came alive in the third set to win 6-2 as the rain began to fall, and led the fourth set 2-1 before the match was suspended.
