Paris: The semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem has been suspended for the day because of rain in the third set.

The players split the first two sets — Thiem took the opener 6-2, then Djokovic grabbed the second 6-3 — and Thiem was up a break at 3-1 in the third when action was halted.

About 45 minutes later, tournament officials announced the match would resume Saturday.

The No. 1-seeded Djokovic has won 26 consecutive Grand Slam matches as he bids for a fourth major title in a row and 16th overall.

No. 4 Thiem seeks his first major championship. He was the runner-up at Roland Garros in 2018.

The winner of their semifinal will face Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final. He beat Roger Federer earlier Friday.
