The French Open suffered its first complete washout since 2000 Monday when all scheduled matches were canceled due to heavy rain.Three quarterfinals are also due to take place Tuesday – Andy Murray against Richard Gasquet and defending champion Stan Wawrinka in the men's event while Shelby Rogers was to face Garbine Muguruza in the women's singles.This year's Roland Garros was hit by rain delays on the opening Sunday when just 10 of the scheduled 32 opening round ties were completed in a little over four hours of play.If there are further delays Tuesday, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, who is chasing a first French Open to complete the career Grand Slam, could end up playing his last-16 tie Wednesday, quarterfinal Thursday and semifinal Friday.In the 2012 final against Rafael Nadal, he had fought back from two sets to love down to take the third set and lead in the fourth when play was halted.
