There was no play at the French Open on Wednesday due to bad weather.

Reigning champion Simona Halep and world number one Novak Djokovic were due to take to Court Philippe-Chatrier, but woeful conditions in Paris led to tournament organisers announcing the holding over of four quarter-final matches.

The decision was taken after persistent rain had seen Halep's clash with Amanda Anisimova and the meeting of Madison Keys and Ashleigh Barty have their start times pushed backed by two-and-a-half hours.

Djokovic was scheduled to face Alexander Zverev second on Chatrier, while Dominic Thiem and Karen Khachanov made up the other last-eight encounter.

The French Tennis Federation offered full refunds to spectators and granted them free entry to the grounds on Thursday.
