Instant replay: pro or con ?

The debate will be stronger and stronger with possible use in US Open and AO. I think that would break the flow of the game and would make matches too long. Plus guys like Federer never argue on bad calls and manage to... hum, dominate by serving an ace on the following shot, so it even pushes the players to play better...

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

it's true that match could be too long but i think it can be very useful
it would create less problems,
And there is too much errors sometimes !!!

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

We had a good discussion about this on www.***************
To me the best thing would be for the umpire to be able to access (he/she could have a running laptop!) instant information following an appeal from a player. There were all too many bad calls at the Pacific Life Open, that was clear!

I think that's a good idea also...we don't want matches being dragged out by line call disputes. We want to keep the flow of the match going, but be able to give the right calls.

'I'd like to be in his shoes for one day,' says Mats Wilander, 'to know what it feels like to play that way.'

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

Any reasons not to do it? I can't think of any, if you can improve the quality of the game with it, why not.

I agree. It would have to be exclusive for umpire (not the public nor the players) and to avoid permanent reclamations, perhaps it could be fixed a maximum number of reclamations by player (eg.: 2 or 3 by set)

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

Not if it stops the flow of the match. The replay itself would need to be quick enough so the umpire could overrule a shot a second after.

I'd want it just for serves. Just because the speed that they are comming at are usually baffling a lot of the judges, and in this case it would be an easier fix to flow of the match, since it was the initial ball of the point.

Limit to 3 challenges like the NFL. Lose a challenge if wrong.

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

why does the umpire have to judge the replay? why not just have the crew from the computer lab or whatever instantly relay to him if it's in or out?

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

pro- because it makes for less hassle- and more actual play. It would make less argument- and stupid linespeople dont need to have the last say on a call.

Nieminen- The lucky lefty of tennis.
Sampras- The hairy champion of tennis.
Ferrero- The mosquito of tennis.
Srichaphan- The Thai- ger of tennis.
Safin - The of tennis.
Bagdatis- The quotesman of tennis "my coach will watch, i will sleep with my girlfriend"
Kiefer- The naive guy, "yeh, me and seb are good friends"
Santoro- The double handed wizard of tennis.
Lopez- IS my hair right? IS my lipstick right?
Moya- The tatoo and muscles of tennis (although nadal kicks his ass in that department).
Tipsarevic- The tatoo of tennis, competing with moya.
Djokovic- Stole Jiri's surname

Sorry if I left out your favourite, just PM me to let me know-- thanks.

Re: Instant replay: pro or con ?

I am against instant replays, because they will make the linesmen feel somewhat redundant. But I voted con especially because I think bad or questionable line calls make for a more interesting match, with players such as Davide Sanguinetti. Trust me, that is tennis amusement first class.

The chair umpire could take advice from the computer lab crew as he does from the lines people in making his call. The important thing is that the decision is quick and accurate. Players who make numerous incorrect challenges would soon be identified by the crowd!
