French Open fans witness a comet: Rafael Nadal loses a set

Schwartzman saved a break point in the last game and he looked pumped and motivated to earn his career-best win, breaking twice in a row in set number two as well.

Schwartzman ended the out-of-sorts world number one's sequence of 37 consecutive sets won in the clay-court major to raise hopes of pulling off an almighty upset on Court Philippe Chatrier.

That game had a 40-15 lead for Schwartzman, a brilliant Nadal drop volley that rubbed out the second set point, a Nadal break point, a handsome duo of Schwartzman overheads for a third set point and, just then, after a first-serve fault, a spectator in the 15th row apparently fainting.

Nadal was back on serve immediately when the exuberant underdog put too much on a groundstroke, but Schwartzman regained the advantage with a simple volley to lead 4-3 after toying with the Spaniard.

Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro were locked at 5-5 in a first-set tie-break when their quarter-final was suspended.

Novak Djokovic's shock exit at Roland Garros opened up the tournament bracket, although there will be a wait to see who out of Rafael Nadal and Diego Schwartzman will move into the semi final after their match was postponed until 12.00PM CET on Thursday.

He stayed in touch until 4-4, pulling breaks back in games four and eight but losing serve again in the following game, which determined the victor of the set.

The match had already been stopped for an hour on Wednesday, with Nadal trailing 6-4 2-1, before play resumed at 17:28 BST.

Soon, with Nadal serving at 3-3, Schwartzman, who did make the 2017 US Open quarterfinals and the 2018 Australian Open fourth round, played the kind of point that kept wreaking the gasps: one on which Nadal appeared the lesser aggressor which, of course, looked weird.

Schwartzman had a point to lead 4-2 but a forehand error allowed Nadal off the hook.
