Someone Explain This To Me... (Re. Serves)

Been thinking this a while and today's match just made me want to ask on here.

Player A hits a 2nd serve
Serve is called out
Player A challenges
Ball is in
Player A gets a 1st serve

Player A hits a 1st serve
Serve is called in
Player B challenges
Ball is out
Player A gets a 2nd serve

Surely if there's any logic behind it in the second scenario Player A should be given a first serve to make up for the time in between the serves?

Can't find the non-sense in here, tbh. Player A is the handicaped one in the first scenario and should get a 1st serve as a reward. Player B is the hancipad player in the second scenario and Player A should bot be the one rewarded.

I think it's more like "sorry, you got screwed by line judge, have a 1st serve as a consolation" in 1st situation, not strictly connected to time wasted.

Re: Someone Explain This To Me... (Re. Serves)

so with your logic someone for missing first serve should get another first serve

don't see anything to think about it here . everything is perfectly logical

Re: Someone Explain This To Me... (Re. Serves)

in first scenario player A was robbed and he deserved first serve again. in second scenario player B was robbed so why not to rob him even more and give first serve to player A again . is this logical to you ?

Re: Someone Explain This To Me... (Re. Serves)

What I was saying is in scenario 2 if player B takes ages to challenge then it's quite unfair on Player A.

Either way thanks for some of you clearing it up.

Re: Someone Explain This To Me... (Re. Serves)

Yeah just gave Davydenko a second serve after the first scenario happens. Just proves this is unfair.

I actually prefer the way he handled it today - if the server hits a 2nd serve, called out, challenged and called good, I think he should get a 2nd serve. It doesn't make sense to replay the whole 'point' since no real disadvantage was caused to the server.
