French Open tennis - 'He's already had a warning!' - Stefanos Tsitsipas in towel drama, almost gets punished
In an amusing race against time Stefanos Tsitsipas, who had already received a warning for taking too long, only just made it back to the service line in the nick of time after absent-mindedly strolling over to wipe his face with his towel between points in his French Open third-round clash with Pablo Carreno Busta. It is not the first towel drama we have witnessed at Roland Garros.
'He's already had a warning!' - Tsitsipas in towel drama, almost gets punished
It was an amusing race against time from the Greek, who had already received a warning for taking too long, and he only just made it in the nick of time.
Eurosport expert Jo Durie, who reached the semi-finals at Roland Garros in 1983, explained what was going on.
Well he's gone to the towel on the other side, he's got to come all the way back, he's already had a warning!
"He's going to lose his first serve... he had to sprint. Oh dear!"
Eurosport commentator Simon Reed added: "He's suddenly remembered! That was comical."
