Moles as linesmen in Madrid (AKA Madrid linesmen bashing thread)

LOL, have you seen this !? There's a Del Potro - Nalbandian match, at *2:2 40/40 ball was clearly IN, way form the line, didn;t touch it and one of those d***heads calls out. Thank god Layhani was there, but the guys were a bit pissed. Never seen anything like that anywhere but in Madrid and it's not the first time. Feel free to complain, this useless thread is meant to be for this

NOTE : I don't have anything against Spaniards themselves, it's just those judges/ballgirls who tend to f**k up nice tennis

Yeah I've seen 2 or 3 really poor "Mariana Alves vs Serena calls" at this event, thankfully each time the umpire has been more alert than poor Mariana was and overruled immediately - but WTF is up with that? Not even on the line but well inside it...

Novak Djokovic - Fernando Gonzalez - Lleyton Hewitt C'mon! - Gastón Gaudio

That's what it's all about. I mean, people watching matches via livestream can be better linesmen. And what will happen when such sittuation occur when a player has no more challenges left (ex. Safin - Nalbandian QF) ? Shit!
