What do you think?“That’s part of the game,” Federer said of Gulbis’ timeout. “He didn’t look hurt in any way. But if you can use it, you might as well do it.”
Gulbis said he reluctantly requested the timeout because of back and hamstring tightness.
“I’m not big on medical timeouts,” he said. “I don’t like to take it, but I take it when it’s really necessary. I didn’t want to take it in the fifth set, so I took it in the end of the fourth set. Unfortunately, it was before his serve.”
