Tennis: Tennis-Mad Medvedev rails at ‘stupid’ bathroom break rule



MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Australian Open favourite Daniil Medvedev labelled the tennis tour's bathroom break rule as "stupid" after rowing with the chair umpire about freshening up during his sweaty fourth round win over Maxime Cressy on Monday.

Russian Medvedev barked at French chair umpire Renaud Lichtenstein over the recently updated rule which limits players to a maximum of three minutes off the court, with an additional two if they opt for a change of clothes.

After closing out a tough 6-2 7-6(4) 6-7(4) 7-5 win over American Cressy nL1N2U40D2 on a sweltering day at Margaret Court Arena, the second seed said players needed more leeway to freshen up on days of extreme heat.

"The thing is that I know that in the 35 (degree) heat, when you're playing in

Tennis: Tennis-Kanepi stuns Sabalenka to reach last eight in Melbourne



MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Estonia's Kaia Kanepi rallied from a set down to topple world number two Aryna Sabalenka 5-7 6-2 7-6(10) on Margaret Court Arena in a tight contest on Monday to reach the Australian Open quarter-finals for the first time.

Having surrendered the opening set for three matches in a row, Sabalenka took a one-set lead for the first time in Melbourne but was unable to build on it as her serving issues resurfaced once again.

Kanepi was gifted a double break early in the second set with back-to-back double faults from her 23-year-old opponent and did not waste the opportunity as she cruised to a 4-0 lead before taking the set.

The 36-year-old carried that momentum into the decider and looked set to go 5-3 up but Sabalenka saved four brea

How to Create Custom Database Tables for Your WordPress Plugins


In the majority of cases, plugins modify options, metadata or leverage already existing tables (most commonly the posts table) to create new functionality.

Custom post types, custom taxonomies, image manipulation, galleries, short-codes – none of these usually need their own database table.

This is because the database schema of WordPress (how the database is organised) lends itself well to development. The posts table can be used to store objects, and the postmeta table can be used to store additional information about these objects. In some situations, however, this becomes cumbersome and/or wasteful.

In today’s post we’ll take a look at the pros and cons of new database tables, how to determine their structure and how to create them in WordPress.

Considerations for Custom Tables?

Whether or not you should use a custom table for your plugin comes down to two factors: the structure and the amount of your
