Video: Dmitry Tursunov calls out Rafael Nadal for time violations

The outspoken Dmitry Tursunov called out Rafael Nadal after receiving a soft warning for taking too much time between points during his first-round match against Grigor Dimitrov at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament on Tuesday.

"How much am I over?" Tursunov asked umpire Cedric Mourier during a changeover. "As much as Rafa or less?"

Mourier, who did not assess the 28th-ranked Tursunov a formal warning, told him he was a few seconds over the ATP's 25-second rule. Tursunov scoffed.

"I think Rafa is eight seconds over and nobody ever gives him a warning," Tursunov said.

Later, Tursunov added: "Rafa will pick his ass for 30 seconds and you guys will watch it. You're not going to say a word."
