No More Toilet Breaks for Tsitsipas? New Rule Changes in the ATP

Interesting to see the ATP taking action after a couple of incidents that took the tour by storm; toilet breaks. Surprisingly enough, the tour looks to issue some new rules that will help the further development of a level playing field for all players.


We all know the incidents that happened earlier this year between Stefanos Tsitsipas versus Andy Murray. The long bathroom breaks to possibly stop your opponent's momentum. It is like icing a kicker in the National Football League, you make your opponent fester and wonder whether they can really finish the job.
