There has been a brief rain delay in the semifinal between top-ranked Novak Djokovic and No. 4 Dominic Thiem.

Thiem had won the first set 6-2 and Djokovic was leading the second 3-2 on serve when the chair umpire sent the players into the locker rooms. They returned to the court 10 minutes later and resumed play.

There was also an earlier rain delay after Thiem broke to take a 2-1 lead in the first set. The players remained on the court then and resumed after only three minutes.

Also, Djokovic asked to speak to a Grand Slam supervisor during the first set when he complained that it was too windy to play. But the supervisor said play would only be suspended if it became too dangerous.
