So when both don't take that long, why the bias vs Hawkeye? I agree it's not available on all courts but at least, this is a progress.
And with the system, there are lots less players arguing with umpire on line calls which saves lots of time, IMO.
Replacing one inaccurate system with another. The umpire is the one who should know where the ball lands and they might as well do away with all of the officials then and just let the machines take over.
OK, if it were unlimited challenges, it could used just as a total distraction tool. Coria would be calling it for every 2nd point among others and even now most are using it at the end of the set for the sake of it.
You are trying to make out Hawkeye is perfect and it's not, there will be errors with Hawkeye and clay and hardcourt can't be accurately compared when it comes to calling lines just cause of the general nature of the surface.
At least they aren't silly enough to implement it in the clay events as of yet.
