Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem will return on Saturday to complete their match after rain forced an early end to play.
It was the wind that caused most problems during what was played of the match, with Djokovic, in particular, unhappy about the conditions.
He asked to speak to supervisor Andreas Egli after going two breaks down in the opening set but his claims the conditions were unplayable fell on deaf ears.
After Thiem finished off the opening set, Djokovic then hit back to level after a brief rain delay but had just gone a break down in the third to trail 6-2 3-6 3-1 when the rain returned.
Just before 6.30pm, play was somewhat bizarrely called off for the day despite Philippe Chatrier being bathed in sunshine.
Confusion deepened as conditions remained dry, with former world number one Amelie Mauresmo tweeting: "Already 50 minutes that it no longer rains @rolandgarros and yet everything has been cancelled. I think we hit the bottom... The good news is that we can only climb the slope now!"
