There are often things in the world that I wonder about and no one seems to know the answer, so I thought I would start a thread for all those questions we may have that no one else seems to be able to help you with and see if anyone here can solve them for you.
Here are the 3 that have been bugging me for ages.

1) Has a player ever double faulted a whole game?

2) When a player goes for a 'bathroom break' (come on we all know they are going for a wee, just say it!), does the offical who goes with them have to stay there and watch them do it to make sure they don't do anything naughty?

3) Has an umpire ever got really mad with a player and had a go at them?

If ever a player has it would have been Guille Coria or his female counterpart Elena Dementieva. ;)

Like what?? :eek: Don't answer that!

I don't know about the ump but Ancic and Capdeville came to fisticuffs last year at RG... :p

I would say no. Remember when Pandy left the court during his SF vs. Potato at AO 2005, and he didn't come back after like 10 minutes so the tournament referee had to go into the locker room to coax him out? ;)

I am line umpire and you need to go with them to the toilett but you have to wait at the door, you don´t need to stay next to him when he is on the toilett and don´t watch him. Just go there wait on the door and then go back with him...

ok this is a non tennis question, but it is really bugging me and freya.
in europe we are in the second part of summer and now the evenings are getting shorter so we are moving away from the sun, so why does it always get warmer then? surely it should get colder??????
