Djokovic one set down as rain stops play in Paris

Play was suspended by rain at the French Open on Tuesday with world number one Novak Djokovic a set down against Roberto Bautista Agut.

The Serbian lost the opening set 6-3 against the 14th-seeded Spaniard on Court Philippe Chatrier when play was halted.

On Court Suzanne Lenglen, second seed Agnieszka Radwanska and Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova were level at a set apiece while on Court One, Australian Samantha Stosur was leading 7-6(0) 3-2 against Romanian sixth seed Simona Halep.

Play started an hour late as rain continued to fall on Paris, one day after the claycourt major suffered its first total washout in 16 years.

Holders Serena Williams and Stan Wawrinka and British second seed Andy Murray, who takes on local favourite Richard Gasquet in the quarter-finals, are also on the day’s schedule.
