In tennis, toilet visits sometimes caused a lot of frustration, because they were not intended for the toilet only.
Toilet breaks regularly caused annoyance in tennis, but ATP wants to put an end to this with new rules that will apply from 2022. Only one toilet break will be allowed per game. “That’s a good thing, because it creates clarity,” Johan Van Herck told Sporza.
“In our sport, this topic was one of the few things without clarity, specifically about the duration and quantity. The ATP has now wanted to put a limit on that.”
Especially after the US Open there was a lot of discussion about going to the toilet. “A player often took a break after a set loss. That’s how you get your opponent out of his rhythm.”
