Defending champion Rafael Nadal was leading Gilles Muller 7-6 (6) in his third-round match at Wimbledon on Friday when rain stopped play for the day.

Muller, who beat Nadal in the third round in 2005, challenged the top-seeded Spaniard in the first set. He hit seven aces and had two set points at 6-5 before Nadal won the tiebreaker.

At 4-4 in the tiebreaker, Nadal slipped at the back of the court while trying to scramble back a smash. He called for treatment on his left leg after winning the set but then was interrupted by the rain.

The match will resume Saturday on Court 1.
