Andy Murray was so pissed that he could not take a piss throughout a marathon match at the Australian Open on Thursday night … he unloaded on the chair ump, calling her rejection of a potty break a straight-up “joke.”
Murray and Thanasi Kokkinakis fought for over FIVE HOURS at the well known tennis competition in Melbourne … and simply the prior to the match went to its 5th set, Murray asked to strike the toilet.
“It’s a 𝐣𝐨𝐤𝐞… It’s 𝐝𝐢𝐬𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐟𝐮𝐥!” 😡

The issue? He had actually currently been when formerly throughout the contest — so, the ump declined his demand.
And, that’s when Murray snapped.
“Do you know something?” Murray stated as it neared 4 AM in Australia. “I respect the rules. It’s so disrespectful that the tournament has us out here until three, f***ing four o’clock in the morning and we’re not allowed to go take a piss.”
What is this madness they started on at the @AustralianOpen…can’t utilize the bathroom?!?!?

Murray continued, “It’s a joke. It is a joke. And you know it as well. It’s disrespectful. It’s disrespectful to you, it’s disrespectful to the ball children. It’s disrespectful to the players and we’re not allowed to go to the toilet. It’s ridiculous.”
Former No. 1-ranked tennis gamer Andy Roddick concurred with Murray … composing on Twitter throughout the match, “This is just so dumb.”
Murray in some way recuperated in spite of not being enabled to alleviate himself … making a 4-6, 6-7 (4), 7-6 (5), 6-3, 7-5 win that begun on Thursday night and formally ended at 4:05 AM on Friday.
The 35-year-old will now deal with Roberto Bautista Agut in the competition’s 3rd round on Saturday. Here’s to wishing for no bladder problems then.
