Nadal loses first French Open set for three years

Timeline of Day 7 How Rafa Serena and Maria enjoyed a super Saturday at Roland Garros

After a rain delay midway through the second set, play was finally stopped for the day with Nadal serving for the set at 5-3 30-15.

Dominic Thiem and Marco Cecchinato have both completed their quarter-final duties on Tuesday and we cannot say the same for four players who have stepped in to highlight the Wednesday's action, as both quarter-finals are delayed for Thursday due to rain.

When play was abandoned under storm clouds about the time most Parisians head for their evening meal, Nadal had repaired much of the damage inflicted on him in the first set, which Schwartzman won 6-4 in and hour-and-a-quarter.

Weinstein has denied ever engaging in nonconsensual sex, and a Weinstein lawyer said Friday he would move to dismiss the new suit. In response, Weinstein's lawyer Benjamin Brafman , said in a statement that he was not surprised by the indictment.

The 11th seed, who had fought back from two sets down against Kevin Anderson to make the last eight, took his third set point with a rasping forehand up the line, after being made to wait when a spectator fell ill in the stands.

Nadal had to receive treatment to his wrist at the end of the set with extra strapping applied.

They will return on Thursday morning.

Ex-Chelsea defender Sinclair: Hazard needs Real Madrid move
But whether the easy-going, fan-hugging German fits the bill at Europe's most successful club remains to be seen. Germany boss Joachim Low meanwhile has ruled himself out of the running to become the next Real manager.

As a effect of this, Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro's match has been moved back to Thursday.

The Spaniard had been on course to do the same at this year's event but saw the first set against Schwartzman go the way of the Argentine, who claimed it 6-4. Muguruza, who is 3-1 against the No. 1-seeded Halep in her career, has never squared off with her in a Grand Slam.

It was the first set Nadal had lost in his last 38, stretching over three French Open campaigns - meaning Bjorn Borg's record of 41 straight sets won remained intact.
