Rafael Nadal was locked in a French Open quarterfinal tussle with Argentinian Diego Schwartzman when rain ended play Wednesday.World No. 1 Nadal lost his first set at Roland Garros in three years, and when bad weather first interrupted the match the 10-time champion was in serious trouble with Schwartzman up a break in the second.Nadal had won 37 consecutive sets at Roland Garros since his 2015 quarterfinal defeat by Novak Djokovic, but dropped serve three times to the enterprising Schwartzman in an exciting opener.Schwartzman, who had never even reached a Grand Slam quarterfinal until last year's U.S. Open, broke first in the second set as Nadal uncharacteristically blew a 40-15 lead, capped by two wild forehands.
