Yes. The most consistent player in time violations..
More than 25s b/w serve points on a regular basis.

To umpires and ATP/ITF I will say only onr thing :- what's the use of rules if you're not going to implement them? Just because you're afraid of top players.......


P.S. :- The poll question is actually :- Enforcement of automatic time violation warnings using sensors??

I cant watch tennis anymore without doing something else between points. A rule is a rule. You should not be able to bend the rule to suit the game style you play. Change your game style to play within the rules.

I don't have the time anymore to sit and watch someone bang out an ace or win a four shot point then take 30 seconds before the next point.

I live for tennis and I want to watch tennis but tennis isn't making it easy for me to watch.

When you try and fake being proactive and laying down the law, but when it comes down to it, you pass the buck or make excuses for not punishing the rule-breakers, you end up looking like a joke. And you get taken advantage of . . . because there are no real consequences or repercussions for breaking the rules. You don't scare anyone, and you garner no respect. You don't deserve respect, because your rules mean nothing and your threats of punishment are hollow.

Any parent knows this. Hell, any kid knows this. When your parents waver when it's time to bring down the hammer, you know you pretty much own them and can get away with murder. That's when you know that as a parent, you've failed. You're a joke.

And that's the ATP. A joke.

Think they should abolish the rule to be honest, this way they're coming off as a bunch of idiots. What's the point of it existing if they're not gonna apply it (or worse yet, apply it selectively based on star power/influence)?

It's a comedy show, who cares about how they'll change the rule when it has no real weight during actual match-play.

Yeah I know rafa forced to ban some umpire who was being honest and determined to work
Is is BS that Rafa is allowed to do that. However the players are in a position where they can influence who can umpire their matches.

It effectively means umpires do not have the power to give Nadal a warning, they have to make an exception for him.

Reminds me of a quote from the referee of Tyson-Holyfield, who Tysons team tried to get removed from the rematch. "The day a fighter can dictate what happens in a fight, I'm gone, because then I don't have any authority anyway."

That is something why I think automatic time violation warning sensors should be adapted, these sensors wont give a damn about whoever the player is, whether rafa or anyone
