They just showed this on tv, during tsonga match, he will be asked to explain after the match.

Could this mean a ban?

Duty free would never do that. He was probably chatting up some babies for after the match.

If he was in direct contact with his coach the whole match and got rocked 6-1 in the final set, he should probably find a new coach.

Q. On the television coverage, it appeared at a change of ends you were in your bag on a phone or something.
DUDI SELA: Yeah, my phone was vibrating. It was on. So I tried to turn it off.

Q. Did they speak to you about that?
DUDI SELA: Yeah, he told me, Did you turn it off? The umpire told me, so I turned it off.

Q. Who was it?
DUDI SELA: Who was it what?

Q. Who was on the phone?
DUDI SELA: No, I got so many messages. I don't know. It was so many messages. So many phone calls from Israel.

Q. From the Prime Minister?
DUDI SELA: No, not yet. If I would win, maybe.

Apparently they showed his coach in the stands who was also on his phone at the same time. I didn't see the footage, but thats what my mum said anyway

Yeah Dudi, if you were just trying to turn your phone off why were you looking at it on two separate change of ends? :rolleyes:

Wouldn't be surprised if Sela cheated with his phone, to be honest.

There is no rule in the rulebook that you cant read text messages during the change over. some players take notes and have a notebook with them...just flip to a page #5 if you're in this situation or that situation vs this player or that play...same thing to me

but he was probably booking a flight home.
