ATP limits bathroom breaks to a single three-minute break from the start of the 2022 season

Starting next season, players on the ATP Tour will have a toilet break of up to three minutes.

The clock will start as soon as the player reaches the bathroom and time violations will be enforced if anyone exceeds the allotted time.

Players are given one toilet break per match and can only be taken at the end of a set, while an additional two minutes are allowed for a change of clothes.

The rule change stems from a high-profile incident at the US Open when former world number one Andy Murray accused Greek opponent Stefanos Tsitsipas of cheating by taking long toilet breaks.

Tsitsipas had a two-minute break at the end of the second set and an eight-minute break for the fifth set of their first round, which the 23-year-old won 2-6 7-6(7) 3-6 6 – 3 6-4.

Murray, who yelled “it’s cheating” to his box during the final set, said after the match: “It’s just disappointing because I feel it affected the outcome of the match.

“I’m not saying I necessarily win that game, but it did affect what happened after those breaks.”

Murray joked on Twitter the next day that it took American billionaire Jeff Bezos less time to fly into space than Tsitsipas spent on the toilet.

Tsitsipas claimed he was not breaking any rules. According to the Grand Slam rulebook, players were required to take a “reasonable amount of time for toilet breaks, but there was no set time limit.

If I break a rule, I’m definitely guilty. I agree with that; I’m not doing something right, Tsitsipas said at the time.

If I stay within the guidelines, what’s the problem?

“I haven’t done anything wrong, so I don’t understand. People love the sport; they come to watch tennis. I have nothing against them. I love the fans. But some people don’t understand.”
