Hawkeye abuse (guess who's the worst abuser)

Australian Open has decided to name and shame the worst offenders and Roger Federer is in the bottom 10 of 41 players.

Djokovic achieved a success rate of 60% and Nadal had 73% success rate, both of which are exceptional. Nadal and Djokovic made the Top 10 and are in reality ranked 1 and 2 as the players above them made so few challenges and/or were eliminated early in the tournament that their results are statistically insignificant.

Federer made 21 challenges on his route to the semis and was correct ONLY ON 5 occasions (23.8% success rate). No wonder Federer was against it. He either makes those terrible challenges to break the opponents momentum (which worked against Tipsarevic) or he needs his eyes examined.

Most people on MTF will accuse Novak for lack of sportsmanship (ball bouncing, medicals etc.), hell even Federer did, but he should take a better look at some of his own actions.

Roger

But he played every single match on that court with Hawkeye. You can hardly make a fair comparison if not all players played an equal amount of matches on court with Hawkeye coverage.

BTW note how Ana Ivanovic has an even worse record.

I know that, I was just comparing him to top 3, all of which played on main courts.

Old news. Ever since hawk eye came out, Federer's been using that thing like crazy. With very little success, I might add.

wat.

Your point being? Nadal and Djokovic are angels while Federer is a sore loser/cheater?

Re: Hawkeye abuse (guess who's the worst abuser)

Someone should tell Federer that some of his challenges were so pathetic they made him look really stupid, even taking into account that he's been against the Hawkeye from the beginning.
Three challenges per set were one too many IMO, giving players chances not only to challenge the calls they thought were wrong, but also to challenge it just to check the call was correct, or to get time to regroup or disrupt the opponent's rhythm in worst cases.

JUAN CARLOS FERRERO FOREVER!!

Also supporting Rafael Nadal, Kei Nishikori, Lleyton Hewitt
David Ferrer, Andy Murray, Juan Martin Del Potro, Nikolay Davydenko, David Nalbandian
Goran Ivanisevic and Marat Safin
#3 Ferrero Tard

No...Novak has his moments and he's criticized all the time and nobody ever talks about Roger. Taking a "fake" medical to change momentum is no different to making ridiculous challenges. Both are done to achieve the same result. Fed is no stranger to sportsmanship himself.
