This is all just assumption, but if ATP is suggesting to umpires not to be very strict about it, and in turn Rafa or any other player is suggesting to ATP to get off his back when he does get penalized, then it is his/their fault? I doubt the umpires have complete freedom there, yet refuse to be more strict.
That's not what he said. Roddick in that video actually goes on about a match of theirs where he had to explicitly wait for Nadal to be ready and getting annoyed by it.given that he himself always played so fast im surprised that he's okay with someone playing so slow
If you don't like the thread and wouldn't like to contribute to the discussion don't reply, there's no need to be an ass about it towards the OP.You read the press too much. Who cares?
