Paris - Rain caused an early stoppage to play at the French Open on Saturday which was good news for Japan's Kei Nishikori.

"All the matches are suspended for the day due to rain. Matches will recommence on Sunday," tweeted the organisers.

Play was suspended at 1705 local time (1505 GMT) and then cancelled for the day two hours later.

Eighth seed Nishikori was two sets to one up on South Korea's Hyeon Chung but a double break down in the fourth set at 0-3.
