Andy Murray pokes fun at Stefanos Tsitsipas morning after US Open controversy

Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray continued taking shots at Stefanos Tsitsipas the day after their US Open clash. On Monday night, Murray suffered a five-set loss to Tsitsipas in the US Open first round. After the fourth set, Tsitsipas went out for a seven-minute bathroom break and Murray was irate.

Murray was fuming while Tsitsipas was in the bathroom and he continued to fume about the situation when the Greek returned to the court. After the match, Murray suggested Tsitsipas wasn't fair and said he lost his respect for the Greek.

The following morning, Murray continued taking shots at Tsitsipas. "Fact of the day. It takes Stefanos Tsitsipas twice as long to go the bathroom as it takes Jeff Bazos to fly into space. Interesting," Murray wrote on Twitter.

Murray believes Tsitsipas knew exactly what he was doing

"Every single (time) it was either -- well, before my serve as well. I think when he took the medical timeout, it was just after I had won the third set. Also in the fourth set when I had Love-30, he chose to go -- I don't know if he changed his racquet or what he was doing," Murray said in press conference.

"But, yeah, it can't be coincidence that it's happening at those moments. I don't believe it was causing him any issue at all. The match went on for another two and a bit hours after that or something. He was fine, moving great I thought," Murray claimed.

"Yeah, it's just disappointing because I thought it influenced the outcome of the match. I'm not saying I necessarily win that match, for sure, but it had influence on what was happening after those two breaks.

"I rate him a lot. I think he is a brilliant player. I think he is great for the game. But I have zero time for that stuff all, and I lost respect for him."
