(Reuters) – Stefanos Tsitsipas, who came under scrutiny at the U.S. Open for the timing and length of his mid-match bathroom breaks, on Wednesday said the dry conditions in Indian Wells will mean fewer trips to the restroom. “It’s very dry here,” Tsitsipas said ahead of his first match at the tournament in the Southern California desert, where he is seeded second. “That is good for me because I sweat less, which makes for less bathroom breaks, which makes for less complaints. Tsitsipas insisted at the time that he was innocent of wrongdoing since there are no time limits on bathroom breaks. An ATP Tour source last month told Reuters that changes to the rules for bathroom breaks and on-court medical timeouts were in the works.
