Talking Chair Umpire History

Hi, may anyone is able to help me. I´m working on a study regarding "Tennis Officiating History" with all technical innovations and scoring systems.
I have got a lot of Scorecards from different Scoring Programmes, but 2 are missing.

1.) In 1992 former Chair Umpire Dana Loconto invented the first ever Computer Scoring System for the ATP Tour ..... Is there anyone (former chair umpire, jounalist) who has one of this scorecard (from 1992 - 1996)

2.) After 1996 there was the Company PARISPORTINFO.COM who created a Scoring Programme which is nearly the same than today from the EDH Scorer. ........ Is there anyone (former chair umpire, jounalist) who has one of this scorecard (from 1992 - 1996)

I will also be greatful if you have other information for me that helps

Thank you very much

Re: Chair Umpire History

I'm very sorry but I don't know much about this either, sadly. Would love to read it just like previous poster, though.
