Netease Sports reported on October 15:
The ancients often said that "people have three urgency." This was demonstrated in a recent ATP St. Petersburg 500 tournament. Because it took too long to go to the toilet in the middle of the game, Ivashka of Belarus was directly penalized by the referee for one game. Ivashka was naturally very dissatisfied with this penalty. He even responded to the referee: "Do you want me to solve it on the court?"
Facing the French player Manarino, Ivasca won the first set. In the second set that followed, Ivashka suddenly became anxious at the 2-3 minutes of the game and requested to go to the toilet during the medical suspension. The referee on duty also agreed to this request, but asked him to go and return quickly.
However, when Ivashka returned from the toilet, he received a penalty of "a round of penalty" on the grounds that the delay in the game caused by the long time in the toilet. For this sentence, Ivashka was naturally very dissatisfied with the referee on the spot.
"This is an emergency, because I can't help it on the court! If you want me to solve it directly on the court, then I have no problem." Ivashka said.
The referee insisted that Ivashka's behavior constituted a violation. "You have been in the toilet for too long, it is already three times the normal timeout, so you are fined one round."
"No, no, you must be joking." Ivashka did not admit his "guilt", "It's impossible!"
Seeing that the dispute between the two became more intense, the referee showed his assassin: "Now you have been penalized one round. If you continue to argue like this, you will be penalized another round."
In the end, Ivashka chose to accept punishment. Fortunately, Ivashka was not affected by this sudden situation. He won the seventh tie in the second set and eventually advanced to the second round in straight sets.
