Rafael Nadal is leading the historic final against Novak Djokovic 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-2. The Serbian will serve for 1-3 when the match recommences tomorrow at 1PM (Paris Time). The match played on Sunday lasted three hours already, with two suspensions due to the rain. The last suspension was definitive, and was ordered when Nadal complained to the referee that there was too much humidity and the balls were heavy. The court conditions were deteriorating and both players agreed to postpone the match. By then, Djokovic was more confident and winning point after point and Nadal was getting more and more nervous.
