Andy Murray is clearly still irked by Stefanos Tsitsipas’ “nonsense” during their US Open clash as the former world No 1 has taken to social media to mock the Greek.

The pair were involved in a titanic five-set battle in the opening round at Flushing Meadows on Monday with Tsitsipas winning 2-6, 7-6 (9-7), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 in just under five hours.

However, Murray’s frustrations boiled over during the match as he was upset over the number, timing and length of the world No 3’s bathroom breaks and medical timeout.

The three-time Grand Slam winner accused Tsitsipas of “cheating” during the match while during the post-match press conference on Monday he admitted that “I lost respect for him”.

And by Tuesday morning he hadn’t moved on as he had another go at the third seed on Twitter by comparing his toilet breaks to American billionaire Jeff Bezos’ rocket trip to space.

“Fact of the day. It takes Stefanos Tsitipas [sic] twice as long to go the bathroom as it takes Jeff Bazos [sic] to fly into space. Interesting.”

In case you were wondering, Bezos’ total trip to space was approximately 10 minutes in total with the American spending roughly three of those 10 minutes in outer space.

Two of Tsitsipas’ breaks were timed at seven minutes and eight minutes.
