Subject: Q re point to set up 3rd Championship Point
I was kind of on the edge of my seat and did not really follow what
happened. Did someone in the audience call a good Federer shot out
and he stopped play allowing Nadal to rip a cross court winner (maybe
Fed would not have got to Nadal's ball anyway)? If that was the case,
I'm supposing there's no rule (e.g., play the point again).

Thanks in advance.

Fed claimed there was a shout from the crowd which caused him to stop
momentarily.

There may have been, but the rules are that you have to play on.

There was a shout, but Fed should know better - have to expect that with
raucous crowd.

Actually it was out of his reach anyway, but yes shouldn't have happened.
