Re: Nadal's timewasting - who's to blame?

I agree. There have only been token warnings. On Sunday Nadal frequently took longer than on the actual occasion he was warned, but the umpire did nothing. If umpires did what they're supposed to, the timewasting would soon stop. So long as they continue to let it go unpunished, it will only get worse.
