Umpire overrules, calls Safin's serve out... / Safin fined, said umpiring was a joke!

....Safin challenges the umpires call with hawkeye and proves him wrong.

Anyone else find that very amusing?

Re: Umpire overrules, calls Safin's serve out

The line calls and subsequent challenges have been appalling at times.

We're not only being treated to a great match, but also some comedy. Hahaha. Safin talking about the tournament director having a cigar in his mouth, two chicks on his arms and not knowing a thing about tennis.

Not a good time to piss Safin off anyway but that was very funny.

Re: Umpire overrules, calls Safin's serve out...

To be fair, a lot of the balls were in or out by a really really small margin

The call the umpire made though was a bad one.

When the umpire overrules a ball soon after being verbally abused by Safin, and is wrong, I think it's an interesting point to make.

The linespeople have been blinded by Safin's beauty.

I have to go with your answer.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog
