No. But it's proof that Evert and Navratilova had a relevant point.

Its not relevant at all; they only make such unsubstantiated statements as if this was proven at all by anyone they're watching. They are not in the bodies of the players when they say they need a bathroom break, so they are merely shooting their mouths off about something they cannot know.

So their opinions don't count?

I thought Sharapova was very good in her 3rd Round Press Conference. I've never enjoyed her as a player, but I do like her dry wit.
Yeah I tend to enjoy Sharapova's pressers. On occasion she's gone too far, but she can be humorous and introspective, which is enjoyable.
 
I have seen Maria exceed 10 minutes twice and not be penalized. I hate the abuse of this rule. I think they should just extend the set breaks to 4 minutes after the second and fourth set and make sure the toilets are close by.
Maria is always going to the toilet.
Yesterday Maria and Caroline has to go to the toilet on different end of set.

That’s why I think they should just have the one built-in 4 minute bathroom break after the second set and if you need to deviate (emergency), you pay a big penalty (like lose a whole game). Or a 4 minute break after every set. If it’s standard then it’s not so disruptive. For every minute you’re late, you lose a point or something.

Svitolina and Zhang are both striking the ball well. Long baseliner games.

Hsieh makes so many opponents' lives hell. Lol. They cannot deal with her off pace, flat strokes and she runs everything down.
