Rain causes Djokovic, Del Potro Saturday finish
Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro will have to complete their Rome Masters quarter-final on Saturday after torrential rain and lightning forced a suspension on Friday.
Four-time champion Djokovic was leading 6-1, 1-2 when play was halted for the night.
“We officially announce that due to the heavy rain, the match between #Djokovic and #DelPotro will resume tomorrow. Time TBD,” said a statement on the tournament’s Twitter account.
The winner will face Dominic Thiem, who knocked out Rafael Nadal, in the semi-finals which will also be played Saturday.
