Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will both hope to dodge the showers at Roland Garros
But first, they both must make it through their quarter-final encounters neither of which is straight forward.
Djokovic faces Dominic Thiem, the world No7 who is the only man to beat Nadal on clay this year so far.
The Austrian faced Djokovic in the semi-final last year but only managed seven games as the Serb moved towards his first ever French Open title.
Nadal meanwhile has dropped just 20 games so far at Roland Garros this year and now comes up against fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, the lowest ranked player left in the men’s draw at No21 in the world.
But both men will have to wait until Wednesday at least to book their semi-final slot after the Roland Garros authorities were forced to send the four players home with rain delaying the women's matches throughout the afternoon.
