Santoro v Grosjean match suspended. But it is indoors. What's up??!!

I really do not understand what has happened that the match in Lyon between Fabrice Santoro and Sebastien Grosjean could be suspended at 10:15 pm French time. Something very odd must have taken place. Can anyone shed some light on this.

I support......

Maybe that is the problem - shedding of light. I remember the Mons Challenger a couple of years ago being suspended because all the lights went out

Shouldn't happen at an ATP tournament, but still. . .

A technical problem (apparently something wrong with the electrical system), they say the audience has been evacuated.
Evénement rarissime : le match Santoro-Grosjean est interrompu et les tribunes sont évacuées à la hâte en raison d'un "incident technique". Le score était de 6/4, 1-3 en faveur de "Battling Fab". L'arrêt se prolonge, il s'agit apparemment d'un problème électrique...

That would be a great thread...'It shouldn't happen in an ATP tournament, but....'

An indoor tournament having a rain delay would be one, as would the whole sprinkler sprinkling on the court thing.

However, I fear the whole thread would degenerate into another match-fixing debate. But maybe it's a thread to consider off-season!

Time for Pimms...

I would cut out the smileys, it could be something bad (injuries), we don't know...

None of the smileys are linked to the question in the original post...

Le problème persiste...
(23h00) - Les lumières du stade ne sont toujours pas rallumées complètement. Un court-circuit dont l'origine n'a pas encore été déterminée fait disjoncter le système électrique. Cela se complique... Gerland est dans le noir, ou presque.

A short-circuit, they don't know the cause yet, still no light in Gerland.

Sounds benign.

Apparently the lights are back and they are going to restart the game.

Actually there was a rain delay on an indoor tournament last year and I think it was in Madrid (but in the WTA YEC.

There was a small hole in the roof and it started raining on that part of the court.

I remember! Thanks: I couldn't recall which match. It was WTA Dubai with the crazy cat on the court too, right?

Man, it really shouldn't happen in a tennis match...
