The robbery happened on GP (40-30, RBA serving by the way), not at 30-30. That's the most terrible part of it all.

He is mimicing abraxas guy's thread for Nadal. You will not receive that much outrage for Djokovic.

RBA also had just one game to recover from the break that ensued. The call was worse in in the Goffin-Nadal match but more consequential here.

We've known for along time that Tìo Toni and Jelena bribe umpires. Like the umpire "forgot" the rule that you can't put the racket over then net when volleying (against Murray a couple years back).

NO. But dull should have conceded against Goffin for sure because this was a much closer call, while nadal's shot against Goffin was CLEARLY out.

Nadal's shot was like 6 inches out, Djokovic's was less than 1

No. Sportsmanship is very good and all, but it's not the player's job to award points.
