CNN reported on the 20th (local time) that tennis star Andy Murray (66th, England) was very angry with the rules that limit the number of times players use the bathroom during a tennis match.

In the second round of the men’s singles at the Australian Open tennis tournament held in Melbourne, Australia on the 19th (local time), Murray won a come-from-behind victory over unknown player Sernashi Kokinakis (159th, Australia) and advanced to the third round (round of 32).

After a marathon match that lasted 5 hours and 45 minutes, the victory was narrowly confirmed, but he had to go through the trouble of being refused to use the bathroom during the

However, the referee said that according to the rules he could no longer go to the bathroom because he had already used up all his chances to go to the bathroom.

In response, Murray asked the referee, “I respect the rules. But this is nonsense. Don’t you know that too?”

The referee looked at him with a look of helplessness.

Then Murray continued to complain, saying, “It’s so rude to lock us in the arena until 3, damn 4 in the morning and not even let us pee.”

“It’s disrespectful to you, to the ball boys and players,” he exclaimed. “We can’t even go to the bathroom. It doesn’t make sense.”

The match, which started on the night of the 19th, ended after 4:00 am the next day.

Tennis rules limit the number of times players can go to the bathroom during a game.

Athletes may go to the bathroom once in a three-set singles match and up to two times in a Grand Slam event played over five sets, such as the Australian Open.

The reason for limiting the number of bathroom uses is that it is considered unsportsmanlike behavior to delay the game due to frequent use of the bathroom.

However, there are opinions that these regulations are excessive.

Andy Roddick (retired, USA), 2003 US Open winner, took to Twitter to channel the complaints in his head, saying, “That’s right. This is really stupid.”

Meanwhile, Murray, who won the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016, went on the operating table in 2019 due to chronic back and hip injuries and contemplated until his retirement.
