medical treatment,if a player is temporarily incapacitated by an accident?

http://www.usatt.org/rules/index.shtml

Table tennis

Rules

13. Intervals

13.4 The referee may allow a suspension of play of the shortest practical duration, and in no circumstances more than 10 minutes, if a player is temporarily incapacitated by an accident, provided that in the opinion of the referee the suspension is not likely to be unduly disadvantageous to the opposing player or pair.


13.5 A suspension shall not be allowed for a disability which was present or was reasonably to be expected at the beginning of the match, or where it is due to the normal stress of play. Disability such as cramp or exhaustion, caused by the player's current state of fitness or by the manner in which play has proceeded, does not justify such an emergency suspension, which may be allowed only for incapacity resulting from an accident, such as injury caused by a fall.

RULES OF TENNIS

30. CONTINUOUS PLAY & REST PERIODS
b. Play shall never be suspended, delayed or interfered with for the purpose
of enabling a player to recover his strength, breath, or physical condition.
However, in the case of a treatable medical condition, the Umpire may allow a
one-time three minute time-out for that medical condition.
c. If, through circumstances outside the control of the player, his clothing,
footwear or equipment (excluding racket) becomes out of adjustment in such
a way that it is impossible or undesirable for him to play on, the Umpire may
suspend play while the maladjustment is rectified.
d. The Umpire may suspend or delay play at any time as may be necessary
and appropriate.
e. After the third set, or when women take part the second set, either player
shall be entitled to a rest, which shall not exceed 10 minutes, or in countries
situated between latitude 15 degrees north and latitude 15 degrees south, 45
minutes and furthermore, when necessitated by circumstances not within the
control of the players, the Umpire may suspend play for such a period as he
may consider necessary. If play is suspended and is not resumed until a later
day the rest may be taken only after the third set (or when women take part the
second set) of play on such a later day, completion of an unfinished set being
counted as one set.
If play is suspended and is not resumed until 10 minutes have elapsed in the
same day the rest may be taken only after three consecutive sets have been
played without interruption (or when women take part two sets), completion of
an unfinished set being counted as one set.
Any nation and/or committee organising a tournament, match or competition,
is at liberty to modify this provision or omit it from its regulations
provided this is announced before the event commences. With respect to the
Davis Cup and Fed Cup, only the International Tennis Federation may modify
this provision or omit it from its Regulations.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most the Umpire strengthen his view on medical time-outs , and suspension shall not be allowed for a disability which was present or was reasonably to be expected at the beginning of the match such as in table tennis?

In my opinion....the referee may strenghten his view such as in table tennis!
