The Wimbledon semifinal match between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was suspended through three sets on Friday night due to the 11 p.m. curfew rule.

Djokovic currently leads 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 over Nadal with a spot in the final on the line. Their match followed Kevin Anderson and John Isner on Friday afternoon, whose match lasted more than six hours — the second-longest match in Wimbledon history. Anderson beat Isner 7-6 (6), 6-7 (5), 6-7 (9), 6-4, 26-24. Their final set alone lasted nearly three hours.

Djokovic and Nadal will resume their match on Saturday at 1 p.m. local time.
