LONDON (AP) — The rain has started on Day 8 at Wimbledon, and play has been suspended.

The main action at the All England Club has yet to start, but other matches on the outside courts are already being delayed by rain.

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic was due to play first on Centre Court in a match suspended from Monday. He was to play Adrian Mannarino.

The four women’s quarterfinals matches are also on the schedule, with five-time champion Venus Williams facing Jelena Ostapenko and Johanna Konta against Simona Halep on Centre Court after Djokovic.

On No. 1 Court, Garbine Muguruza will face Svetlana Kuznetsova and Magdalena Rybarikova will meet CoCo Vandeweghe.

Centre Court has a roof, but No. 1 Court does not.
