Andy Murray and Fernando Verdasco Are Having a Heated Disagreement Over the U.S. Open Heat Break Rule

Fernando Verdasco sent Andy Murray home at the 2018 U.S. Open on Wednesday, but not without a clash about the heat rule at the U.S. Open that continued to cause controversy.

England’s Murray and Spain’s Verdasco faced off in their at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City on Wednesday night which saw Verdasco besting Murray in the match 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4.

It was a scorcher with temperatures closing in on 100 degrees Farenheight, and both players took a beat during the heat break when they were tied in the second round.

Under the new stipulation, players can pause to rehydrate and cool off. But they’re strictly prohibited from speaking with their coaches, something Murray told reporters he witnessed Verdasco doing. Verdasco has denied this.

“[Verdasco] was having an ice bath,” Murray said during his postmatch news conference. “When I came out of the shower, his coach and his…I don’t know if he’s playing doubles with him, but one of the Spanish doubles players….was in there chatting to him, and you’re not allowed to speak to your coach. I went and told the supervisor.”

Murray said he raised the issue with the supervisor. “What are you guys doing? I mean, there’s clear rules here, and you’re allowing this to take place. I don’t get it. They obviously weren’t in there for long, but you got to do better than that. This is one of the biggest events in the world. If you have rules like that, you need to stick with them because one player getting to speak to the coach and the other not is not fair.”

The two tennis greats’ accounts differ. “I know the rule exactly. I didn’t speak anything to any member of my team,” Verdasco said in a post-match conference.

Murray has struggled with an ongoing hip injury, and this marked his return since his last match in 2016. As the tennis star bowed out of the Open, he shared remarks in an Instagram post that worked in a jab at Verdasco. “I’m off to get a health check as apparently I’ve started imagining things #liarliarpantsonfire,” the caption read.

Andy Murray Breaks Down in Tears After Emotional 3 a.m. Victory While ‘Closing Time’ Plays

An emotional Andy Murray broke down in tears after pulling out a hard-fought victory over Marius Copil at the Citi Open early Friday morning.

The former world No. 1—currently ranked 832nd—wept into a towel for several minutes after defeating Copil 6-7, 6-3, 7-6 in a round of 16 match that lasted for more than three hours, and didn’t finish until 3 a.m. “It was just the emotions coming out at the end of an extremely long day and a long match,” Murray told reporters.

However, some speculated that Murray’s tears had more to do with his ongoing comeback following a persistent hip injury that kept him sidelined for nearly a year.

The tennis great is set to face Australia’s Alex de Minaur in the quarter-finals later on Friday, but said there’s a chance he won’t play. “Finishing matches at 3 in the morning is not good,” he said. “It’s not good for the players. It’s not good for anyone, I don’t think, involved in the event. It’s not good for fans, TV, nobody.”

Andy Serkis Believes Mo-Cap Acting Will Soon Be Considered for the Big Awards

The Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs don’t nominate performance-capture work for the big awards, but Andy Serkis thinks that will change very soon.

Serkis stopped by FANDOM’s studio to discuss all things War For the Planet of the Apes – including his incredible performance as Caesar – and explained that he thinks the entertainment industry’s attitude towards mo-cap is changing fast.

Serkis on Mo-Cap

“It’s becoming apparent now” he explained. “People are realising that acting is acting. This is just another way of cloaking an actor’s performance if you like. Or costuming an actor’s performance. Not to take anything away from the brilliant work that the visual effects companies do, because of course, they play a hugely important part.

“But I think people are beginning to realise that the process of acting — what we do on set — is exactly the same regardless of whether you go into makeup… or having that done after the fact. The process in between — what we do — when we go on set we work with the director, we work with the other actors, we’re authoring those roles in exactly the same way as you would.

“I think people are definitely beginning to understand that this is not an animation process, where the emotion of the character and what happens in the scenes is created after the fact. That it’s not a committee of animators that are drawing these apes. It’s absolutely the actor’s medium and the actor’s performance that are authoring the role. So that is beginning to be understood, and it’s up to really the actor’s branches to push and educate and to fully understand that to make awards possible.”

Check out his interview in the above video, while War For the Planet of the Apes is out now on Digital, and hits Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD on October 24.
