Tennis - French Open - Roland Garros - Rain at French OpenBy Pritha Sarkar PARIS (Reuters) – Fans spent more time looking at the murky Parisian sky than watching tennis on Tuesday as French Open organizers were accused of “not caring about the players” after the event was disrupted by more rain following the previous day’s washout. Czech seventh seed Thomas Berdych summed up everyone’s frustration on a day when nine hours of play was lost by tweeting: “Hey @AustralianOpen can you send us one roof here to Paris?! You have 3 down there.” The inability to play under cover, with Roland Garros being the only one of the four grand slam venues that does not have a court with a retractable roof, certainly proved costly for Agnieszka Radwanska and Simona Halep — fourth-round losers in the only two matches that were completed on day 10.
