Rain Stops Play at Nottingham

Published June 20th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Play was suspended at the $375,000 Nottingham Open on Tuesday because of rain just 20 minutes into Tim Henman's match against Sweden's Jonas Bjorkman. 

The British number one was leading 4-3 at the time after breaking Bjorkman's serve in the third game. 

Henman was looking for much-needed grass practice the week before Wimbledon after losing early in the Queen's tournament, but the weather was threatening to disrupt his preparations for the All England Championship, where he is seeded eighth - (AFP)
