Amanda Anisimova was the latest to be accused of calling for the trainer as a tactical move when she halted proceedings in the middle of a tiebreaker in her match against Donna Vekic at the Italian Open.
Anisimova won the first set and had match point in the second set before Vekic broke back to force another breaker.It was 1-1 when the American 19-year-old held up her hand and walked off court.
“Really, now?” said a frustrated Vekic.
But Anisimova launched an immediate defense, arguing blisters had appeared on her right hand.
“It just happened,” she said. “If I would have fell it would have been all of a sudden too.”
Vekic is not happy with Anisimova taking a medical time-out during the tiebreak (blister). #IBI20

The injury didn’t stop Anisimova from claiming the second set tiebreaker and the match 7-6 7-6.
She later posted a photograph of her hand to social media to highlight the blisters.
It comes after Serena Williams was targeted by some fans after taking a medical time out to have treatment on her Achilles late in her semifinal defeat against Victoria Azarenka at the US Open.
But the injury was cited as the reason Williams is not playing in Rome.

185 hand sanitizers recalled after reports of blindness and hospitalizations, FDA report
The FDA says the recalled hand sanitizer products are considered unsafe due to methanol contamination or because they contain “concerningly low levels of ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol, which are active ingredients in hand sanitizer products.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that consumers use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent isopropyl or ethyl alcohol.
FDA officials said they were aware of reports of adverse events associated with the listed hand sanitizer products including adults and children who ingested products contaminated with methanol that led to blindness, hospitalizations and death.
New products were added to the list as recently as Tuesday with retail chains like Walmart and Costco having previously issued recalls for unknowingly selling the contaminated products.
The FDA is advising consumers not to use the recalled products because methanol - used in fuel, solvents and antifreeze - is poisonous to humans and substantial exposure could “result in nausea, vomiting, headache, blurred vision, permanent blindness, seizures, coma, permanent damage to the nervous system or death.”
The list of recalled products, including details about the manufacturers, can be found on the FDA website. The investigation by the FDA into the use of methanol in hand sanitizers is ongoing.
The names of the recalled products are listed in the document below:
