The trio headline a busy Day Three of play

Rain on the first two days of play at Roland Garros is resulting in an action-packed Day Three, with Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal all scheduled for play on Tuesday.


Murray and qualifier Radek Stepanek are the second the match of the day on Court Philippe Chatrier, as they resume their encounter from Monday. Play was called off due to darkness with Stepanek leading 6-3, 6-3, 0-6, 2-4.
