ATP introduces strict guidelines for toilet breaks in men’s tennis

Strict new guidelines for toilet breaks during matches have been sent to players by the ATP after increasing calls to make long toilet visits a thing of the past.

The ATP guidelines will limit a toilet break to one per match, which will last no longer than three minutes from the time the player enters the facility.

Players on the women’s ATP and WTA tours have regularly been accused of using bathroom breaks as tactical weapons at crucial moments in matches.

Stefanos Tsitsipas was accused by Andy Murray of cheating at this year’s US Open after the Greek disappeared from the field on several occasions during their first-round marathon match.

The third seed had a long toilet break at the end of the second set, a medical time-out after the third and a nearly eight-minute break at the end of the fourth set.

In his next match, Tsitsipas went into the dressing room for more than seven minutes after losing the third set, only to be booed by the Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd on his return.

Tsitsipas argued that he was not breaking any rules, so the ATP has decided to intervene, although some may feel the new guidelines still don’t go far enough.

While toilet breaks are limited to three minutes, players are also given two minutes to change.

Players are limited to one toilet break per match and are only allowed at the end of a set.

If a player spends too long in the bathroom, he can get time violations.

The ATP is also reviewing new rules for medical timeouts, allowing players to take only one three-minute timeout per game during a switchover or set break.
