Rafael Nadal was dominating Novak Djokovic through two sets. He won the first set 6-4, showcasing his top-notch French Open Final form. He was on top of his game, working the court and making clean contact.

His success continued in the second set, which he won 6-3. He looked well on his way to yet another French Open title.

Then, Djokovic found his form and confidence. His strokes were clean, he made few errors and he was beginning to frustrate Nadal.

Djokovic won the third set 6-2. Suddenly, he had life, and the crowd was beginning to believe he could storm back too. 

Nadal wasn't very happy to be playing on the slick clay due to the weather. He was noticeably getting upset, and he was allowing it to get to his play.

By the time the fourth set began, Nadal was having even more trouble with his contact. Part of it was probably the rain on the clay causing unfortunate bounces, but his confidence level also wasn't where he needed it to be.

Djokovic ended up winning eight straight games. 

But now we wait for mother nature to tell the rest of the story. 

As rain continues to be a steady drizzle, stay tuned to see if they get back on the court.
