PARIS (Reuters) - The completion of the French Open semi-final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray has been delayed until Saturday after the match was interrupted by a storm on Friday, organizers said.

World number one Djokovic of Serbia was leading 6-3 6-3 5-7 3-3 against the British third seed when play was suspended, with organizers later saying the match would resume on Saturday at 1100GMT (7 AM ET).

The women's singles final is due to start at 1300GMT.

The winner will face Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka in Sunday's final.
