So, can a player challenge his own shot if it`s going against him?

Just cross my mind watching Ančić and Dančević the other day. Mario hit a great serve but Frank had a fantastic backhand return and won a point. But I thought there for a moment that Mario`s serve could be wide. So, can he make a challenge to his own shot if the ball was wide and there was no call from the umpire or the man standing on that line? And what happens than after the challenge? He is challenging his own shot and turns out to be wide, does he lose this challenge or not? And does he have a first serve because after using the challenge will have a 30 second delay from that first serve which is always not good for the server?

I've always wondered about that. I think they should have the right to challenge because in this case the server loses the point. Guess there hasn't been such situation

That would be totally unsportsmanlike. Don't think were going to see that anytime soon at least. Maybe if a new, in-your-face generation rises.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

yes. remember roddick did the similar thing before. he thought his serve was wide, he stopped play but the return came back was good. he challenged his own serve, which was good. he lost the point.

That might be the only case I could see that players would do it, if they think that a serve is out and don't even try to get to the ball. That's the right way to do it besides, if a player tries to play a ball then he can't challenge. But seriously, I don't think we'll be seeing a lot of those, at least not those that would be challenged just because the return was huge.

I wouldn't call it unsportsmanlike. The Hawk-eye system is there for a reason and the players should be able to challenge anything. Dancevic gained the advantage because the line-judge made a mistake, Ancic should not suffer for his. If the ball is out, then second serve I say.

Hmm yes you do have a point Chris, however it's a tricky matter. They would have to clearly signal their challenge and not try to get to the return, otherwise the challenge should be invalid.

Yes, but that is irrelevant, nobody said they would chase down the return. If the ball is out, second serve.

Burrow, IMO it's hard to prove in those situations whether the player tries to catch it or not. But I admit that I was wrong and a bit harsh in my inital judgement

Of course can you challenging your own shot.

Happens sometimes that somebody loose the point after the return and then they challenging their own close serve call. If it was a fault, then they are lucky because they do not loose the point, but only have 2nd serve. Good deal.

Becker was a master in doing that to complain to ref that his own serve was out after he came to the net and lost point with a return.

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!

I don't think it would be unsportsmanlike. Maybe everyone had this experience from time to time: You serve and don't react to the returning ball because you thought your serve was out!
