A new solution to the time violation problem
NB: A refined version of this proposal was recently published in the Tennis View Magazine.
Those of you who have read my original article about Nadal’s time violation may recall that I proposed that the excess time after each serve be added and once a certain limit is exceeded, the server automatically loses the point. The ATP then came up with a much better solution, namely that the player receives a warning at first, and for subsequent time violations only forfeits his first serve. This approach has for all intents and purposes, however, proven to be completely impractical. The typical player explodes after having received the first warning and I cannot recall a player ever receiving that second warning, which would have cost him his first serve.
I have noticed during recent televised matches that the ATP can display the average time it takes a player to serve (the whole purpose of my original article J), quite easily and at any time. So why not do the following? For each player, continuously display the average time he takes between first serves, on the scoreboard. Let an average time below 25 seconds be displayed in green, between 25 and 30 seconds in yellow or orange, and the moment a first serve is served which takes the average above 30 seconds, the display turns red. The umpire is only allowed to issue a warning when the display has already turned red, i.e. for the next serve. This approach would have the following advantages.
1. The player is always in control of his own destiny. If his average is green and he arrives at a crucial point, he may take 90 seconds to prepare for his serve without being concerned about the umpire (it will, of course, push up his average). He can work his average down again during later, easier points and build up a reserve for when extra time may be required.
2. When the display turns orange, he knows that he should hurry up, but he would still have no need to be concerned about the umpire, even when he is at an average of 29 seconds. He may just be in trouble if he should exceed the time-to-serve for his next serve.
3. It would make the life of the umpire much, much easier. Once the display has turned red, he would be completely justified (if not compelled) to issue warnings as is done at present, should he feel like doing so, depending on the specific stage of the match. That would remain the case until the player has worked his average back to at least orange.
I decided to insert this ‘solution’ before the main article as I would really like to know what you think of it! You can read the rest of the article at your leisure, should be interested, but please rate my suggestions at the end of the article as well.
I wrote the following article after Federer’s loss to Nadal at the 2008 Wimbledon Tennis final and have added the occasional update since. For many years following that final the focus on who might be the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) had been on Federer and Nadal, but over the past few years Novak Djokovic has quietly slipped in as the third contender and he may very well end up wearing that crown, should it be based on purely the number of major titles. I certainly hope that Federer will continue playing for some years to come, for as long as he can compete, and perhaps, with some luck, he’ll be able to capture that elusive 18th grand slam title.
To me the definition of the GOAT encompasses more than just the number of titles won, or the years as number one. What Roger Federer brought to the world of tennis is unlikely to be paralleled again. Not only is it is effortless game and movement, his shot-making and tennis artistry, but also his sportsmanship and personality on and off court. May he be remembered for a very long time. I was tempted to say ‘always’, but should the human race and the game of tennis survive for millions of years to come, ‘always’ now will be long forgotten by then.
For the record, I have decided to add the details of how I performed the time analysis of the match. It was done by means of a Borland Pascal program which I wrote after the final, called WIMBLEDN.PAS (a text file) as included in the ZIP file here. I have also included the executable file WIMBLEDN.EEX, which if anyone should be interested, can be run in DOS mode by changing the file type back to .EXE. One of course has to watch the match while performing the analysis, which I did from a DVD, but it can now be bought here as video file. This site can really be recommended for its variety of matches and also the quality, in HD, of all recent noteworthy matches.
The image below shows a screen shot of the match in progress (Nadal preparing to serve for the last point) and the DOS window display right after he had won that point. During the actual recording process I had moved the DOS window off screen – I did not have two monitors available at the time. I have not written a user guide for the DOS program as I do not think there will be a single person interested in repeating this analysis. However, the basic principle is that the program will keep track of the score as the match progresses, and the user presses keys like ‘S’ for when the first serve is served, ’A’ for an ace, ‘N’ for Nadal having won the point, ‘F’ for when Federer had won the point, and so forth. One quickly gets used to the keystrokes.
Screen shot of match in progress and DOS recording screen (click on image to enlarge)
So, in order to start the analysis, run the DOS program and the video, the press ‘P’ when the umpire calls for play to commence and ‘S’ when Federer serves his first serve. Then press ‘N’ when Nadal wins the first point, ‘S’ when Federer serves again, ‘F’ when he wins the point, etc. You’ll notice that several other functions also had to be programmed in, such as for challenges, when the analysis had to be interrupted or paused and when the wrong key had been pressed (happened a lot). The program automatically creates a text file named WIM_2008.DAT at the start and updates this continuously during the recording process. The histograms of these data were plotted afterwards by means of a MatlabTM program I had written, but which is not included here as it can be easily done by experience programmers.
Back then the ATP did not yet have the ability to perform a time analysis of a match and I submitted the results of my analysis to various tennis magazines. It was never accepted for publication, though, possibly due to the ‘disagreeable’ content of the rest of my website!
As a note to the time violation method I proposed in the article, the ATP’s solution of an automatic first serve fault after the first warning is brilliant (just goes to show that two heads, or many, in fact, are better than one!). However, it rarely goes beyond a warning. With the advances in technology, it may, however, be possible to allow more time between points depending on the duration of the rally. Having just served an ace will require less time to prepare for the next point than just having finished a gruelling 22-point rally. The allowable time will then be calculated automatically and if exceeded too far, a fault can be beeped. A player can argue with an umpire, but not with a computer.
Irrespective of the time delay issue, I still feel that something should be done about the medical timeouts. Even though they are fully justified in many instances, Nadal had early in his career become notorious for his regular use of medical timeouts to break his opponent’s momentum (to my knowledge he hasn’t done so for some time now, possibly because of the crowd’s response, e.g. at the 2014 Australian Open final), and even the almost impeccable Djokovic tried the same trick when Murray was about to serve for the 2012 US Open title. Some ladies were even more blatant than their male counterparts - Dr Google will tell you their stories in detail. I would, therefore, appreciate your feedback in the poll at the end of the article.

Arguably the greatest game for ordinary people, and one of my passions. Not that I am particularly good at this, but I nevertheless enjoy a good game as much as anyone else. I am of much the same caliber as Roger Federer in that I coached myself. Over the years numerous coaches have tried to change my ways, to little avail. I have no memory but muscle memory, and that I can’t get rid of. My best and most cherished shot is the volley. My weakest and most dreaded shot is the serve. Have to say that I recently began to see some light at the end of the toss, but only time will tell whether it is real or imaginary. Wimbledon, get ready!
One of my greatest gripes in any aspect of life is cheating (the greatest being having to live up to the expectations of others). Many tennis players are guilty of cheating in various respects and when it affected the tennis player I admire most, I felt compelled to write the article below. [Article written October 2008]
Federer vs Nadal – the Greatest vs the Not So Great
The game of tennis probably lends itself to rivalry between two contesting individuals more than any other type of sport. With Roger Federer having been replaced as the world's number one tennis player by Rafael Nadal, it is perhaps an appropriate time to take a look at the character of both players. Federer is viewed by many as possibly the greatest tennis player so far, whereas Nadal certainly holds the promise of surpassing even Federer's achievements. It is not only Federer's accomplishments on the tennis court that have earned him respect, but also his on- and off-court behaviour. He is very popular among his fellow players and the public alike, having won the Laureus World Sportsman Award for the past four years consecutively in competition with all other sportsmen across the globe. Nadal's career has virtually just started, but he has already been around long enough to allow a judgement to be made of his character as a tennis player.There is no question that Nadal has thoroughly earned his position as the number one tennis player in the world, although Federer's illness at the beginning of this year certainly contributed significantly to his lack of form throughout most of the year and therefore Nadal's success. Unlike Federer though, Nadal's image is not completely untarnished. Among my friends I have long contended that, in addition to being on top of the game in many respects, Nadal is also a master of gamesmanship. This is of course a contentious statement and very difficult to prove. We all know that Nadal takes his time to prepare for serving, but how bad is it really? Did he feign injury against Federer in Monte Carlo, or did he genuinely require medical attention? What is his on-court behaviour like in general?
In this article, written for the fun of it, I endeavour to prove that Nadal is indeed guilty of gamesmanship of significant proportions. The first to be addressed will be his timely medical time-out called for during the Monte Carlo final on clay this year, followed by a point-by-point analysis of his delaying tactics as witnessed during the epic Wimbledon 2008 final. Nadal is of course not the only tennis player to be guilty of these forms of gamesmanship and in order to put a stop to it, I propose methods and regulations that I have no doubt will succeed in doing so.
Oh, my leg, my leg (foot … toe … ear ...)
The ATP tennis rules [ATP 2008 Official Rulebook (ATPRB), attached] allow for
a medical time-out of 3 minutes to be called once for every type of injury a
player may suffer [ATPRB, VI-P to VI-Q, pp. 102-107]. This even includes cramp,
which one usually associates with a lack of fitness rather than being considered
a true injury. Although the umpire has the authority to disallow a request for a
medical time-out, it is virtually impossible to judge whether an injury is real
or not. Apart from requesting Nadal to submit himself to a polygraph test, there
is likewise no direct means of proving that he stooped very low during the
crucial final in Monte Carlo this year. Instead, I will use an example of a
similar event that occurred some years ago and the effect it had on the outcome
of that match. I will also show that Nadal had every reason to resort to such
No one will rush Rafael Nadal ...
Everybody who has an interest in tennis knows that new stars like Nadal and
Novak Djokovic take their time when they prepare to serve. Unless one times
every point with a stopwatch (as is effectively expected from the umpire), it is
however difficult to judge exactly how much time is wasted by their settling
down routines. Before attempting to assess the latter, we should first take a
look at the rule book.
What stands to be gained by delaying tactics?Before continuing with the time analysis as recorded by means of my program, it is perhaps appropriate to consider what can be gained by a player employing delaying tactics.
Time analysis of the Wimbledon 2008 final
Returning to the actual time both players took to deliver their serves, Federer took 3974 seconds in total to prepare for his 195 serves (average 20.4 seconds), while Nadal took 6629 seconds to prepare for his 218 serves (average 30.4 seconds). This not only shows that Federer maintained a safe margin of 5 seconds with respect to the rules, but that Nadal constantly violated the time limit by about the same margin. If the time limit rule had been strictly enforced, Nadal too would have had to maintain a safe margin, probably also at least 5 seconds. One can therefore conclude that we spent more or less 2180 seconds (36 minutes 20 seconds) too long watching Nadal prepare for his serve. About half of this time was in direct violation of the rules.
During the five set Wimbledon 2008 final won 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-7 (8), 9-7 by Nadal, Federer served 195 times and Nadal 218. The time each player took to play the first serve is shown in Figures 1 and 2 for Federer and Nadal respectively. In both graphs a time limit of 25 seconds was used throughout and is shown in green. The red bars indicate time in excess of 25 seconds. It is immediately obvious that Federer is also guilty of regularly violating the time limit, but then not nearly as excessively as Nadal. Reviewing the points where Federer exceeded the time limit quickly revealed the reason. Whenever a ball changeover occurs (the total number of games is an even number or there is a change of server during a tie-break), the balls have to be passed to the opposite side of the court and a delay of up to 10 seconds can occur before the ball boys can hand the balls to a player for serving. A similar delay occurs when the umpire calls 'time' and the players have to walk from their chairs to the base line. An even longer delay occurs when the players change sides after the first game of each set or during tie-breaks. If the time limit is nevertheless maintained at 25 seconds, Federer exceeded this limit by a total of 219 seconds (3 minutes 39 seconds) while Nadal did so by 1375 seconds (22 minutes 55 seconds). At first glance it therefore appears that we spent in excess of 26 minutes watching the players wasting time in direct violation of the rules, the bulk of the delay being caused by Nadal. An alternative time limit methodology will be proposed towards the end of this article.
Figure 1. Federer's Time To Serve for the Wimbledon 2008 Final, time limit 25 seconds
Figure 2. Nadal's Time To Serve for the Wimbledon 2008 Final, time limit 25 seconds
Some points of either very short or very long time-to-serve need to be clarified and are listed in the tables below for the Federer and Nadal serves respectively.
Nadal’s other little “sins” ...
Nadal's gamesmanship is not limited to service delaying tactics only. I can remember one particular match that was due to start, with the umpire and his opponent already waiting at the net ready to toss the coin. Nadal remained seated and continued with his rituals, then jumped up and stormed onto court, bouncing around like a ball. A bit odd, don't you think? He evidently uses similar delaying and intimidation tactics when he and his opponent have to leave the cloakroom to go on court and he is regularly guilty of glaring at opponents when he wins crucial points. Not that the latter is against the rules - it is simply not good sportsmanship to do so. And then he has that other little problem. I have no doubt that Boxer will gladly offer him a sponsorship!
In defence of Rafa ...
Despite all the negative criticism handed out, I do not for a moment question the fact that Nadal is a great ambassador for the game of tennis and that as a person he is a particularly friendly and humble guy. It must be very difficult for any young man (or woman, of course!) to fight his way to the top against the best in the world, in full view of the public, always putting the best foot forward. Many champions have come and gone, but few will be remembered. I sincerely hope that Rafa will discard his bad habits and become one of the greatest tennis players the world has ever seen, in all respects.
Some other interesting Wimbledon 2008 Final statistics
So what can be done about those timely injuries?
As stated before, it is not only Nadal who uses gamesmanship to influence the outcome of his matches, but numerous other players do so as well. The most unsettling form of gamesmanship to an opponent must certainly be the well-timed call for a medical time-out. Rain delays regularly come to rescue of players, as for instance during the Goran Ivaniševi? vs Tim Henman Wimbledon 2001 semi-final. Henman was leading 5-7, 7-6, 6-0, 2-1 and was dominating play when the rain came down. The momentum changed, Ivaniševi? scraped through and eventually went on to defeat Pat Rafter in the final. All players are aware that a medical time-out can have the same effect, especially when an opponent knows that the injury is feigned.
The ATP has in good faith and probably for very good reasons introduced rules that allow medical time-outs to be called. These rules however have numerous drawbacks:
In my opinion there is only one way to resolve this problem and that is to allow the clock and score board to keep ticking during a medical time-out. The latter must of course be allowed as a sudden but brief injury related problem may occur. I specifically remember an incident during which John McEnroe was bouncing the ball, but somehow managed to get it into his eye. He was then allowed some time to recover, although strictly speaking it was all of his own doing. This is of course perfectly in order, as no one would have wanted the match to be cancelled at that point. As another example, the number one player in the world may be leading 2-0 in sets and 5-0 in games in the third set when he accidentally injures his knee. All he needs is a couple of minutes to recover, but at that very instant he will not be able to continue with play, so there can be no doubt that medical time-outs must be allowed. However, in order to counter dishonesty, I would like to suggest that whenever a player calls for a 3 minute medical time-out, he or she should immediately forfeit the next 6 points (180/25 = 7.2, allowing one extra grace period of 25 seconds). One may argue that if a player calls for a medical time-out to be taken during the 90 second changeover, the penalty should only be (180 - 90)/25 = 3.6, or 3 points, but one should take into account the fact that the continuity of play is interrupted and that it may have a negative impact on the other player. An additional penalty would therefore seem appropriate. Should the injury occur just after a changeover and be of such a nature that it requires immediate attention, at least 7 more points will anyway have to be played before the next changeover occurs, so that 6 points for 3 minutes will be nothing but fair. To keep matters simple, I would therefore suggest that a player immediately forfeits 6 points whenever he or she calls for a medical time-out.
The proposed 6-point penalty rule for medical time-outs will have the following benefits:
Too little time?
Regarding the time restriction of 25 seconds for a player to serve, there are two aspects to be considered, namely the actual duration of the time limit and then of course violation of that time limit.
From Figures 1 and 2 above it is clear that some points take significantly longer than others to initiate (play the serve). As already mentioned, it can take up to 10 seconds for the ball boys to pass the balls to the other side of the court when the number of games is level or when the server changes during a tie-break. For such points one should therefore allow at least 35 seconds instead of the customary 25 seconds. Even longer delays occur when players have to walk to the other side of the court, as occurs after the first game in each set and at the change of sides during a tie-break. It can take up to 15 seconds for a player to take his towel and walk to his chair and another 15 to walk to the opposite side of the court. The players also stop briefly to take in some fluid, which typically takes 10 seconds. All in all we therefore have to add about 40 seconds to the 25 seconds allowed between points, but as the players are not really allowed to stop during the changeover, one should probably allow only 35 seconds extra. The time limit for changeovers should therefore be 60 seconds in total. When the players are seated and the umpire calls time, an additional period of at least 10 to 15 seconds should likewise be allowed for the players to take position (for simplicity's sake, make it 10 seconds again). A brisk walk is all that is required and 35 seconds to serve should be ample time. For all other points the time limit should remain 25 seconds.
If we apply the proposed time restrictions to the Wimbledon 2008 final, the time-to-serve for both players changes significantly. Federer's time-to-serve now rarely exceed the limits (Figure 3), while Nadal's (Figure 4) still does so, but to a significantly lesser extent than before. Federer's only significant time violation (serve #158) was caused by Nadal changing rackets and was therefore not a time violation on his side. Federer then exceeded the time limit by an accumulative duration of only 11 seconds during the entire match. Nadal, on the other hand, did so by 869 seconds, from which one should subtract 12.8 seconds (point #240, a Federer racket change) and 33.5 seconds (point #210, a Federer delay), but then again add at least another 20 to 40 seconds for the delay during point #188. Nadal's delays then add up to more or less 14 minutes 30 seconds, which still far exceeds any reasonable delay.
As a matter of interest, Nadal is certainly capable of serving within 25 seconds. Virtually all his time violations occur when he towels himself after a point and then goes through his customary routine in preparation for serve (in itself a slow process). However, if nearly all other players on the tour can force themselves to adhere to the rules, our Mr Nadal can certainly be expected to do so as well.
Timing something that cannot realistically be timed...
Even if the more practical time limit scheme proposed above is accepted, the question still remains as to how it can be enforced. According to the rules, a player should receive a warning following the first time violation offence, then be penalized by a point and thereafter be penalized by a game for every offence. To begin with, this will require the umpire to time virtually every point by means of a stopwatch. This would be a totally unrealistic expectation as the umpire has many other aspects of the game to concentrate on.
Secondly, and even more difficult to implement, is the decision of when to penalize. Strictly speaking, when a player has already been penalized by a point and then takes 26 seconds instead of 25 to deliver his first serve, he must forfeit one complete game. This would of course be utterly ridiculous and would wreak havoc on the nerves of the server. There therefore seems to be no practical way in which the time limit rules can be enforced as they stand. An option would of course be to simply scrap all the time limit rules, but that would allow players to take as much time between points as they want to. A 10 minute rest break midway through a game would for example then still be in order.
Figure 3. Federer's Time To Serve for the Wimbledon 2008 Final, proposed time limit scheme
Figure 4. Nadal's Time To Serve for Wimbledon 2008 Final, proposed time limit scheme
A method that could potentially work very well is not to penalize a player on a point by point basis, but rather on the basis of an accumulation of time violations, a balance of excess time. For instance, if a player exceeds a serve time limit of 35 seconds by 2 seconds, then 2 seconds must be added to the excess time balance. Once a specified balance limit is exceeded, the player loses one point, the balance is cleared and the process of accumulation starts afresh. A realistic limit would be 25 seconds, which means that a player loses a point for every full point he delays. As the accumulated time can easily build up to 25 seconds during a long match, it would be essential to clear the balance at the end of every set, regardless of the balance at that point in time. With the proposed time limit scheme, Federer would nevertheless not have lost a single point even if the account had not been cleared after every set. One may be tempted to say that Nadal would have lost about 35 points, but had the accumulated time penalty scheme been in place, he would of course have avoided being penalized by hurrying between points on his serve.
There are numerous other aspects of the scheme that have to be considered in the spirit of the game. The intention is neither to rush players nor to put them under any unnecessary stress - it is simply a means of preventing some players to exploit the time restriction rules. In the interest and spirit of the game, the following guidelines are suggested:
The practical implementation of this timing scheme will require some additional electronic equipment, similar to but much less sophisticated than Hawkeye. When the time progression of the match was recorded with my computer program, the end of each point (signaling the beginning of the next time-to-serve period) and the time of the actual serve were both recorded by pressing a key. A personal computer could be used in identical fashion for actual matches, but a better approach would be to have only the end of points recorded by a person (more than one may be a good idea). The actual time when the serve is played can easily be recorded by a microphone with a focused beam (similar the parabolic reflector type), which can be directed to pick up mainly the sound of the ball being hit. That sound can even be electronically processed to discern it from surrounding noise (there should of course not be any!). In addition to the conventional keyboard of the computer, a simple control panel may be added with keys for temporarily stopping the timing process when the receiver or external factors delay the game, correcting a specific time excess addition to the balance, clearing a specific time excess addition, etc.
The proposed time monitoring system will take time to investigate and even longer to implement. As an intermediate solution, or possibly even the long term solution, one may rather opt to time-analyze matches after its completion and enforce a penalty if gross violation of the rule of continuous play is found. The penalty could take the form of a hefty fine (possibly related to annual prize money or ranking, for if it is too small and it will simply be laughed off), or even banning the offending player from participating in the next tournament of equal stature. It all depends on how serious the delaying tactics offence is deemed to be. The disadvantage from a post facto penalty scheme would be that the player will not be aware of the level of his time limit transgression during a match, which he can control at that stage, and it would certainly not be in the interest of the game to exclude players from participating in any of the high level tournaments.
This may all sound like an enormous effort to control a less important aspect of the game, but at the same time it is also ridiculous to have formal rules that are impossible to implement. On the other hand, the high profile matches are watched by millions of people around the globe and millions are spent on broadcasting and advertising rights, in comparison to which the extra effort and expense would be insignificant.
In the aftermath of the Annus Horribilis...
I was certainly not alone in feeling sad when Federer lost that last point. I immediately turned off the set as I am sure many others did as well. I have no doubt that he was graceful in defeat as he always is. That loss must have been the hardest of Fereder's career and many must have believed that it signaled the end of his magnificent career. What a delight it was to see him fight through the US Open fourth round match against Igor Andreev (OK, only afterwards)! That victory must surely rank as one of his toughest and best. It was even better to see him play the way we have become used to seeing him play in the final. His thirteenth Grand Slam title also ended what may very well have been the worst year of his professional life. Adversity, however, only tends to make one stronger.
Returning to the subject of this article, the tennis world is looking forward to years of intense rivalry between its two top players - that is to say, of course, if they can manage at all to stay at the top amidst the wave of rising stars (cf. Madrid, Paris, Shanghai, Murray). In a lighter vein, the present contest can be compared to the finesse of a Swiss clock pitted against the power of a charging bull. Although this may seem unfairly balanced, everything depends on the clock. It simply needs to find a way to turn back time!
With close to two years having elapsed since I wrote the somewhat emotional article above, I have to admit that despite my stubborn refusal to become a supporter of Rafael Nadal, I no longer can resist. There has never been any doubt that Rafa is one of the best clay court players in history and that he may very well become the Greatest Ever (on clay!), but it is his character that has become a true compliment to the game of tennis, as is Roger’s. He deserves to finally be in the record books, and I wish him the best of luck for the future (on clay!).
A last word on the tennis issue …
Much water has passed under the bridge since I published this article in October 2008, and both Nadal and Federer have achieved new heights in their careers. As far as the timing issues, for which I have created a poll, I am a bit annoyed with myself that I did not think of the ATP’s solution to the problem. The new rule by which a player forfeits a first serve if he should receive time violation warnings subsequent to an initial warning, is by far the best way of dealing with the problem, even though it is rarely used. For that reason I have closed the poll on time violations. However, I still feel very strongly that any medical time-out, for whatever reason, unless caused by an external factors (e.g. being injured by a supporter or a chair breaking), should be penalised by the number of points the player would have played during the time-out. Please continue to voice your opinion in the poll above.
Returning to the topic of which of the two players may be the greatest player ever (obviously, to date), it is instructive to look at the surfaces on which they fared best. Of the four grand slam events, two are played on hard courts, one on grass and one on clay. Of the nine Masters 1000 Series events, six are played on hard courts and three on clay. Their achievements on these surfaces are shown in the tables below.
Nadal is without question the “King of Clay”, as is evident from his records. However, it is a pity that the Masters 1000 Series does not have a single grass court event , let alone three. What would Nadal’s Masters 1000 Series record have looked like if there were no clay court tournaments (Monte Carlo, Madrid, Rome), but three grass court events instead? It should also be noted that Federer reached the French Open five times, and lost to Nadal on four of those occasions.
In my opinion there can be no doubt that regardless of whether Nadal’s Grand Slam trophy count should eventually surpass Federer’s, Roger Federer will remain the most versatile in terms of surface, the most talented in terms of his repertoire of shots, and in conduct the most professional male tennis player of this era. He would be the nearest to “the complete tennis player” that I can imagine anyone ever to be, this Gentleman of Tennis.
