Re: Do the Rules on Medical Timeouts Need Tightening Up?
Some things are absolutely necessary in tennis, and a bathroom break (without penalty) is definitely one of them. Limit when you can take them by all means, but to penalise players for them is out of the question. Same with MTOs.
That's bullshit. The bathroom breaks should be merged with medical timeouts. You get three per match. Otherwise, players will always abuse the bathroom rule. If you already used your timeouts, you either default, or crap yourself on the court. Life's a bitch. And anyway, Nike will send you a new outfit at no charge.
