Venus Williams received some unwanted divine intervention during Monday's defeat to Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, after she was given a time violation while waiting for heavy winds to die down before serving.
"If the wind blows, then I can't hit the ball," she told the umpire. "I can't control God, I can't control the wind. I'm just saying that if the wind blows, there is nothing I can do about that. I can't control God, talk to him," she added, pointing to the sky. :laughing:

And this must be the funniest WARNING issued...starring Sinner.
Linesman who followed player to bathroom: *shuffles up to umpire chair* “excuse me the player did not take a ****” Umpire: “thank you for your service”

Sinner later apologized and said he did not know the rules:-D:-D
"Hey Jannik, you have some problems and you go emergency toilet for 10 minutes, and you think you're a good kid? Look at me!"

Venus does seem to be stalling more often for time between points. More errant ball toss. The wind blows? Yeah. If it's a windy day...too bad. The same for both players. If a few heavy gusts, then waiting a bit should be okay.

That muppet who ratted on Sinner looks the part — so eager and quick to meet the umpire and report his finding, walking ahead of player (Sinner should have smelled what was coming and quietly made a sneaky U-turn behind his back and dashed back to the loo).

Accompanying a player is supposedly one of line umpire responsibilities to ensure it's a toilet or attire change break:

He could have just told Sinner the rule in the bathroom instead of waiting till he returned to court. Having gone there, Sinner could have used the facilities, it'd have made him feel better?

The line guy's gestures when he's reporting are quite funny though!:laughing:
