  • Rafael Nadal 'A lot of players should have won a Major but they didn't'

On Court Suzanne-Lenglen, Juan Martín del Potro and Marin Cilic were locked at 5-5 in the tie-break after squeezing in 71 minutes of tennis.

Fears of yet another injury appeared early on in the encounter as the Spanish icon requested taping for both of his wrists, and the rain delay may end up helping him.

The 25-year-old 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.

Before an expectant crowd on Court Philippe Chatrier, Nadal extended his streak of consecutive sets won on the Paris clay to 37 - only Bjorn Borg (41) is ahead of him in those stakes.

A hold and a break later he was serving to level the match, but at 5-3 and 30-15 the heavens opened again and they were forced off once more, this time for good.

Another rain delay sent the players off court and shortly afterwards play was suspended for the day.

Cecchinato, the world No 72 who bundled the former champion Novak Djokovic out of the tournament on Tuesday, gets his chance to go forward on Thursday, when he plays Dominic Thiem in the first semi-final.

Marterer, enjoying his best run on just his third appearance in the main draw of a major, performed with admirable composure and maturity that belied his 22 years and did force another break midway through the third set but ultimately could do little to halt the Nadal juggernaut. After a brief rally of handful of forehands, the ball boy seemed to have had enough of it, but Nadal insisted on playing another point and this time the ball boy brought out his double-handed backhands.
