Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic’s semifinal Wimbledon match was cut off immediately after the third set because of a stadium curfew.
The match was pushed back because John Isner and Kevin Anderson previously played a marathon match that lasted over six hours.
Nadal and Djokovic will have to resume their match on Saturday before the winner will play Anderson in the final on Sunday, meaning one of Djokovic or Nadal will not be well-rested heading into the final.

A thrilling Wimbledon semifinal match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic was cut short on Friday because of the stadium curfew.

Because of the marathon match between John Isner and Kevin Anderson earlier in the day, Djokovic and Nadal got off to a late start. ESPN’s commentators warned during the match that the stadium would be enforcing the strict 11 p.m. curfew.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
