In other offbeat news from the Open, the match between Belgian Christophe Rochus and American Donald Young was stopped for 40 minutes after a ball boy wet his pants on court 10.
"The ball kid peed on himself. It was unfortunate," Young said.
"It took a while to replace him. Then they had to put the sawdust down, or whatever you put down when somebody throws up.
"Then they had to use the blower (to dry the court) but the blower had no gas in it, so that took even more time."
Young, 20, was up two sets to one and had just broken Rochus to establish a 2-1 lead in the fourth when the incident occurred, but eventually overcame the distraction to win 1-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-4.
