After unloading on Stefanos Tsitsipas last night for taking lengthy bathroom breaks, Andy Murray woke up this morning feeling like he had to take another dig at the 23-year-old.
“Fact of the day. It takes Stefanos Tsitipas twice as long to go the bathroom as it takes Jeff Bazos to fly into space. Interesting. 🚽 🚀”, Murray tweeted.

Following his victory today, Reilly Opelka, who also took a long break after winning the second set, came to the defense of Tsitsipas.
“To change or to go after, you know, two sets we’re drinking, we’re hydrating a lot, we have to use the bathroom,” Opelka said. “To change my socks, shoes, my inserts in my shoes, shorts, shirt, everything, the whole nine yards, hat, it takes five, six minutes. Then by the time I walk to and from the court.”
“I don’t know Tsitsipas, I don’t know his situation,” he added. “I doubt he’s getting coached. I highly doubt it. Today, you know, I couldn’t even take my bag in to change. I’m like, Guys, my clothes and shoes are in here. You can come stand in here with me if you want. I don’t like being coached on court, that stance, I don’t think we should have on-court coaching at all, but I strictly go to change because it’s hot and it’s humid.
“If people don’t understand that, then clearly they’ve never spent a day in the life of a professional athlete or come close to it.”
