Murray progress delayed by rain again
Thursday 27 May 2010
Andy Murray and Juan Ignacio Chela completed only one game upon the resumption of their French Open second-round match today before rain forced the players off court.
World number four Murray returned to Court One this afternoon 6-2 3-3 up overnight on Chela after their contest was suspended in fading light at around 9.30pm last night following the first wet day at Roland Garros.
Chela had enough time this afternoon to hold serve and go 4-3 up in the second set and Murray just enough to get to 15-0 in game eight before the weather turned.
With the first four and a half hours of today's play wiped out, Murray was again made to wait before taking to the court.
He and Chela eventually resumed at 5.06pm local time, both picking up where they had left off with a succession of long rallies.
Murray got to deuce on his opponent's serve trying to reclaim the break he had surrendered in the final game last night.
But the Argentinian held before a heavy shower saw play suspended just seven minutes in.
