French Open Final: Nadal, Djokovic In Rain Delay

Rain has struck again at Roland Garros, forcing the second rain delay in the 2012 French Open final between top-seeded Novak Djokovic and French Open king Rafael Nadal.

Nadal stormed out to a quick two set to none advantage, winning the first two sets 6-4, 6-3, despite the fact that the second set featured the first rain delay of the match.

Djokovic, though, didn't plan on going quietly into the Paris night. The Djoker stormed back, dominating the third set 6-2, and jumping out to a quick 2-0 advantage in the fourth set. Nadal bounced back, though, and took the third game of the fourth set -- but much to Nadal's chagrin, the match was once again suspended immediately following the third game.

The win in the fourth set for Nadal broke a streak of eight straight games won by Djokovic. Nadal expressed his displeasure about the match being suspended, saying that the court's condition is the same as it was an hour ago when the match was being played.

The match is supposed to resume at some point on Sunday.
