Britain’s Andy Murray was leading American John Isner in their fourth-round match when rain brought a halt to play at the French Open in Paris.

The second seed saved three set points in a 16-minute first-set tie-break and was leading 7-6 (11-9) 2-1 when play was suspended at 16:00 BST.

Officials hope the rain will clear later to enable the match to resume.

Japanese fifth seed Kei Nishikori was 4-2 up on France’s Richard Gasquet on Court Philippe Chatrier.
