Yeah, I heard that too. But they didn't explain it more than that. Just "40 seconds to hit if he's not first to play." I assume that it's measured from the moment the player before you hits their shot. And I assume that if you are first to play, you're given 50 or 60 seconds from the moment you get to your ball?

I doubt it. I've never heard of the guy before yesterday. And the Chinese kid isn't playing either (who was also slow) so you're safe there. Nor is Kevin Na, I think. ;)
