PARIS. France May 30 – Heavy rain has forced day nine of the French Open to be cancelled, meaning top seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams must wait to play their fourth-round matches in Paris.

Monday’s play was due to start at 10:00 BST, but the action was delayed before being called off completely about 12:45.

Djokovic was due to face Spanish 14th seed Roberto Bautista Agut.

Williams was set to take on Ukraine’s 18th seed Elina Svitolina.

Britain’s Andy Murray, seeded second, is already through to the quarter-finals, where he will face French ninth seed Richard Gasquet.

That match is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, although the weather could force a delay.
