Andy Murray getting better...

At wasting time, I believe by the end of the Open he will have eclipsed Humbalito as the greatest time waster in the history of tennis. Thought?

The world must be ending if that has become true. Time wasting is a part of the sport and I think most Murray/Nadal/Djoker fans will completely approve of it since every point has to be a battle and they need there rest afterwards.

When was the last time you saw any member of the top 3 lose a first serve or a point as a penalty for time wasting?

To be fair, most umpires (probably close to 100% of them) would not dare to drop the time violation point penalty on players like Nadal/Djokovic/Murray.

It just wouldn't happen unless they were going ridiculously overboard with it (like 30+ seconds every point).

Yeah I agree. The chair umps are getting a lot of flack for it. I don't think they should, because once the players get accustomed to it, they won't take so much time. There's a break in period, and the chair umps should stay stringent unless it's a long point, at that point they should be more lenient

Rafa had a point penalty against the Novak at this year FO.
