Their 8th meeting at majors but the first one in Paris. Djokovic was four points away from winning sets No. 3 & 4. After more than 3 hours of play, the match was suspended on Friday at 3-all in the 4th set due to thunderstorm. The entire contest lasted 4 hours & 9 minutes (the fourth longest match of the French Open 2015). Murray loses his first match having won 15 in a row, all on clay (career-best = 17). The Open Era players with the most semifinal appearances in Paris not reaching the final:
4 – Jimmy Connors
3 – Boris Becker & Andy Murray
2 – Raul Ramirez, Jose-Luis Clerc, Jonas Svensson, David Nalbandian & Nikolay Davydenko
Djokovic & Murray have played 5-setters three times against each other (the Serb won twice)
