Second-seeded Andy Murray is now set to take on No. 9-seed Richard Gasquet on Wednesday. Defending champion Stan Wawrinka, who was scheduled to play Albert Ramos-Vinolas, has also been given an extra day off.

Play is again being delayed by bad weather at the French Open.

After dropping his first set at Roland Garros this year, top-ranked Novak Djokovic has recovered and leads 14th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut 3-6, 6-4, 4-1 when their match was suspended.

Although play has been stopped on all courts, stadium workers have not put the covers back and matches could resume soon.

4:20 p.m.

Second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska is out of the French Open, losing to Tsvetana Pironkova 2-6, 6-3, 6-3 Tuesday in the fourth round.

Radwanska, who held a 6-2, 3-0 lead when her match resumed on Court Suzanne Lenglen, lost 10 consecutive games to put herself in deep trouble.

She asked for a medical timeout after the third game of the decider to receive treatment on her right forearm and hand. It didn't have an immediate effect as she dropped her serve at love in the next game.

Radwanska finally managed to stop the downhill spiral when she broke in the fifth game but could not stop Pironkova from advancing to the quarterfinals.

Their match was suspended on Sunday night and could not resume on Monday because of the rain that washed out play at the clay-court Grand Slam.

Pironkova advanced to her third career Grand Slam quarterfinal after reaching the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2010 and making it to quarters at the All England Club the next year.

Samantha Stosur has reached the quarterfinals of the French Open for the fourth time.

The 32-year-old Australian, a finalist at Roland Garros in 2010, beat sixth-seeded Simona Halep of Romania 7-6 (0), 6-3.

The players were pulled off court in the first set on Sunday evening because of rain and darkness and could not play Monday when the entire day was washed out for the first time in 16 years.

Stosur, the 2011 U.S. Open champion, will next play either Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria or Agnieszka Radwanksa of Poland.

Novak Djokovic is back on court at the French Open, where play has resumed after a rain delay of more than 2 1/2 hours.

Before the break, Djokovic lost the first set of his fourth-round match against No. 14 Roberto Bautista Agut 6-3.

Shortly before the action on Court Philippe Chatrier returned, Djokovic wandered out into the arena for a look at the conditions, borrowing a green-and-orange Roland Garros umbrella from a fan.

Three-time French Open champion Arantxa Sanchez Vicario's pick to take home the title from Roland Garros this year?

Serena Williams.

Says Sanchez Vicario: ''I think she's the favorite to win. She's always the favorite.''

That doesn't mean it's a lock, though.

''Definitely she is a human being,'' Sanchez Vicario added Tuesday, when she was announced at Roland Garros as an ambassador for the season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore, ''so she's beatable. ... At other tournaments that people (didn't) expect her to lose, she lost.''

Novak Djokovic is not having an easy time in the rain at the French Open, dropping the first set of his fourth-round match against 14th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain by a 6-3 score.

It is the first set Djokovic has lost in this year's tournament as he tries to win a fourth consecutive major title and complete a career Grand Slam.

Djokovic has already been broken three times in four service games against Bautista Agut, who is trying to reach his first Grand Slam quarterfinal.

Right after the opening set ended, play was suspended on Court Philippe Chatrier because of the weather, and Djokovic and Bautista Agut headed to the locker room.

Rain is delaying play in all singles matches at the moment.

The damp conditions don't suit Agnieszka Radwanska on Court Suzanne Lenglen, where the second-seeded Polish player has just lost six games in a row and the second set against Tsvetana Pironkova.

The 102th-ranked Pironkova trailed 6-2, 3-0 when the match resumed. She got off to a strong start and overpowered Radwanska with aggressive shot making to force a decider before play was suspended.

Matches on other courts continued, though.

Players have finally stepped out on court at the French Open.

There has been a break in the weather and second-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska is hoping to quickly complete her fourth-round match against Tsvetana Pironkova on Court Suzanne Lenglen.

Radwanska is trying to reach the quarterfinals for the second time in Paris as she holds a 6-2, 3-0 lead over her 102th-ranked Bulgarian rival. Their match was suspended on Sunday night and could not resume on Monday because of the rain that washed out play at the clay-court Grand Slam.

Top-ranked Novak Djokovic is on Court Philippe Chatrier against 14th-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the quarterfinals.
