Novak Djokovic’s time wasting antics are under the microscope again.
Leading into the eighth game of the second set, the clock stopped which brought about frustration from British tennis legend Tim Henman.
“There let’s keep an eye on it, because there is no way that he will be serving in 12 seconds. The clock has stopped. Why? Why has that clock stopped?,” he said on Nine’s coverage.
“We thought we had seen it before. Now, does it matter? I don’t know, but it is an observation and it should be made.”
Todd Woodbridge was also critical.
“I think it does matter, because when you are out there and you have a run of play and momentum on your side, Novak is very good at trying to halt your momentum,” he said.
“If he gets down in a game, or down 0-30, he take as lot longer and if the clock is being slightly stopped or not being officiated to the degree we would expect, then it is an advantage to Novak.”
The second set is now 4-4.
