Fourth round play Monday at the French Open has already been cancelled, the tournament announced at 7:45am ET (1:45pm local).
The full day cancellation is the first since Tuesday, May 30, 2000 when the tournament lost the entire day due to rain.
Matches today have been postponed which will compress the schedule. Men were slated to complete their fourth today, and that will mean top half players like Novak Djokovic will have to win four best-of-5 matches in six days to capture the title, if the tournament keeps its Sunday men’s final.
Defending champion Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray are already through to the quarterfinals and are still on schedule.
