Hawk-Eye to debut at Memphis tourney

Tournament director Peter Lebedevs said the Hawk-Eye instant-replay system, prevalent at Grand Slam tournaments and upper-level events on the ATP World Tour, will be used at this month's RMKC for the first time.

Lebedevs said the tournament found a local partner, the West Clinic, to help with the cost. Lebedevs wouldn't disclose the cost, but two years ago tournament advisor Bill Rapp estimated the expense to be at least $75,000.

Lebedevs said the fan experience will be enhanced by the addition, which will require 14 cameras placed around the club's Stadium Court. With the system, the players are able to challenge a limited number of lines calls during a match.

"It's a commitment to continue to improve the tournament, and the players wanted it," Lebedevs said. "This takes us to the level all the (ATP World Tour level) 500 events have. It's a great thing for the tournament."

I guess we'll see once live streams start.
yep it's there. Stakhovsky just went through all his challenges in set 1 vs Milos (got them all wrong)

Re: memphis: bottom half of draw

and now with Petzschner AND Harrison gone, the road looks even better! Still some trouble in the top half though. Go Milos!!!!!!! If he wins, he may crack the Top 20. :-)

With the Harrison and Petzschner chokes, it's Rochus and then Kubot/Becker now. I can't imagine an easier 300 points being available anywhere else on tour. He shouldn't fail.

Re: memphis: bottom half of draw

Is anyone else glad that Stepanek didn't end up in the bottom half instead of Raonic? There could have been no seeds left at this point.
