French Open 2016: All matches washed out on Day 9 due to heavy rain

Paris: As a result of persistent rain, all matches were cancelled on Day 9 of French Open 2016.

Belgian David Goffin and Latvian Ernests Gulbis were expected to open proceedings on Court Philippe Chatrier but that was not possible as rain continued to play spoilsport.

Rising Austrian star Dominic Thiem was scheduled first on Court Suzanne Lenglen against Spaniard Marcel Granollers, who got a walkover into the fourth round after nine-time champion Rafael Nadal withdrew last week with a wrist injury.

The crowd was deprived of some quality action as Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams were also expected on court later in the day.
