2012 French Open Final: Nadal Leads Djokovic, Stuck In Rain Delay

Rafael Nadal isn't quite ready to let go of his reign as French Open king. Not yet, anyway, as Nadal currently leads top-seeded Novak Djokovic two sets to one in the 2012 French Open Final. Unfortunately for both players and tennis fans, the match is currently in a rain delay -- again.

Nadal took the first two sets of the match, winning 6-4 and 6-3, and it looked for awhile that Nadal would be able to win his seventh French Open title since 2005, and his third in a row.

Djokovic, though, wasn't about to let Nadal coast to victory. The Djoker took the third set, winning 6-2, and he currently leads the fourth set, 2-1, which is currently suspended due to rain.

The match's second rain delay came after Nadal won the third game of the fourth set, ending a streak of eight straight games won by Djokovic. Nadal apparently complained to officials about the delay, and is seemingly unhappy with the decision to halt play.
