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

ATP it's 25 seconds and it's from when the score is called by the umpire.

In other words, he wastes time and gets away with it and will continue to do so.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
