Automated Line Calls

Post by Ace2Ace » Feb Wed 10, 2021 7:18 pm

I hated it when someone won a point, and a linesman messed it up, then the point had to be replayed.
No more such mess. If this Automated Line Calls system had been around the last 15 years, Serena would be at over 30 slams....
Too many dubious calls denied the lady and many others.

There was always such tension due to bad calls & too many unwarranted losses of points.

Very effective thus far. Complaints by players have essentially been muted, the Chair not receiving displeasure from players on questionable rulings or calls, conversations practically eliminated. The only player I've seen complaining about a line call is Ostapenko.

And super excellent for the server. No more fake aces and foot-faults

Foot fault.....automated line caller just called a foot fault on Karolina Pliskova. So, the violation is part of the camera program. First one I've seen thus far. KP's reaction was just serve again w/o any reaction to the call.

Yes.. there was one already a couple of days ago.
The system sends into early retirement, the dude that called an imaginary foot-fault on match point.
