Roger says that players need to stick to the rule also in order to lose viewers


Roger Federer is criticizing again his tennis nemesis Rafael Nadal for time violation.

Roger: We may lose viewers because we play too slow ….

"I just think it's important that we, as players, play up to speed and don't exceed the time limit, because what I don't want is that we lose viewers because we play too slow

… you can focus in only 10 seconds

Then he added “I know you need to focus. That you can do in 10 seconds. Just can't be that we only see two points per minute. I just feel like we need to keep up the pace and obviously play according to the rules. The rules are there not to be broken, but of course you need to give leeway to tough rallies. I did watch some matches, but they were playing so slow I was like, Okay, I really can't watch it."

Roger has already expressed his concern about Rafa in a previous interview. Will the umpires follow the rules?

It is up to the umpire to give violations. If he or she does not then that is the way it is.

respect the rule. if time violated, umpires should enforce penalty. otherwise, cheaters get unfair advantage. and what is the point of the rule, then?

Roger knows he can win this Wimbledon and Rafa is a big hurdle. He is trying to unsettle him to prepare the semifinal

Actually I agree w/ him, nowadays the player too much waist the time, bouncing balls, scratch the bum, ear, nose...what else?

RF is not being Mr Nice Guy in this Wimbledon no more!

First the `hint` of a "more-vulnerable" Nadal in early rounds, now a repeated reminder to relook at time violations, supposedly at Nadal.

For the record, I am on his side.

Just could not understand how he gets away fron it for so long.
