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. :shrug:

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...

:D 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!

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

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. :lol:

:D 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...
