Oscar Otte was caught on camera during his match against Andy Murray at Wimbledon asking to be able to change his shorts as they were “falling down”.

The two-time Wimbledon champion came through a testing match against No 24 seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in his first singles match at SW19 in four years.

And it set up an interesting second-round tie against German Otte, who beat Arthur Rinderknech earlier in the week.

It’s the first time Otte was playing in the main draw at Wimbledon and certainly the biggest stage he’s played on in his career.

He was up against it early on though as Murray went on the offensive to find a break of serve.

It eventually came in the fifth game on the fourth attempt to break Otte.

Both players returned to their chair after the game for a short break, but Otte approached the umpire chair to make a strange request.

It appeared as though Otte was not happy with his shorts as he felt they were falling down.

He could be heard saying: “They’re the only ones I have and they’re too big.

The umpire certainly saw the funny side of the exchange as she couldn’t help but crack a smile.

She then got on the phone to seemingly get a new pair of shorts delivered for Otta to change in to.

Otte would have to wait for the change of shorts it seemed until the end of the set though.

And Murray made light work of the first set in breaking a second time to take a 1-0 lead.
