Denis Shapovalov frustrated

All he wanted to do was go for a wee, but the chair umpire was having none of it and Denis Shapovalov was not very happy with the decision.

Shapovalov found himself involved in a gripping five-set Australian Open first-round match against up and coming young star Jannik Sinner on Margaret Court Arena on Monday evening in Melbourne.

After the Italian won the opening set, Shapovalov won the next two before Sinner drew level to take it to a decider.

At the end of the fourth set the Canadian called for the trainer and the chair umpire gave him the green light.

However, while awaiting the trainer, Shapovalov requested a bathroom break and this time the answer was no, much to the 11th seed’s frustration.

“I’m gonna p*** my pants…,” he said during an argument with the official and after a lengthy explanation he continued: “I’m gonna p*** in a bottle. By the time [the trainer] he comes I would already have been back. So you guys don’t allow players to p***? I don’t understand that rule.”

Shapovalov, though, didn’t relief himself on the court in the end and he managed to win 3-6, 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 in three hours and 54 minutes.
