he was up 10-9 in the third set tiebreak and asked for a bathroom break. just pathetic. he, of course, won the next point because his opponent, who had saved like 5 match points until that point, got tight and netted an easy forehand

:fiery:

That is a truly bizarre move by Capt. Blackbeard. Don't see anything that urgent that couldn't wait one more point.

That's pathetic. The umpire actually granted this bathroom break?

Not prohibited, but not respectable either.

as long as the rules allow it, I don't see anything wrong with it.

Was it to protest the new doubles system of play? It's not like he could have used the bathroom break in the last game of the match...b/c there was none! :eek:

a game is a game. You do anything it takes to win as long as it fits under the rules.

There are more than rules in life; respect comes in mind.

You just don't take a bathroom break at that time of the match.

Maybe it wasn't about sportsmanship. Maybe his bladder just put up a warning sign.

Jeeeez.
