Yes, that's really surprising somehow and I must say I can't understand why he is still so sceptical about that after testing already at Hopman Cup.

I mean, he's the one who is upset about the calls on the court all the time and some replays showed that he was wrong on some calls which he argued in his own field. And he's a professional who practises or plays almost every day, so you could guess he has enough experience and his eye is well-trained enough. But still mistakes do happen. And I don't think that putting the money in the training of the line umpires, how he suggests it, would solve the problem. Some things are just unbelievably hard to see and very hard to decide, whether a few millimeters of the balls caught the line or not, and this all with the speed of today's game. So why not let the technology help you? I welcome it and I hope it works fine.

I thought he said at Hopman Cup, that he liked it? So I'm very surprised about this entry, too...

Disputing line calls is a big part of his game, I am not surprised that he doesn't like it. Who will he stare down and cuss at now?

OMG what is he doing to us?! What a nerve-racking match! First he blows his 4-2 lead in the 3rd set, then he needs 5 break points to get that break.

But this was the match he needed to win. Now he's the favourite in his eighth or even in his quarter. But the next match against Gonzalez won't be much different I fear.

7-6(4) 2-6 6-4

Re: the "Kiwi- enjoy the Miami nightlife but please win vs. anyone other than BYE" thread

First I'm glad that he won!!! So celebration

haha, when looking at his next opponent with Gonzalez, I fear that Gonzalez could have one of these very good days again where he hits almost every shot. On the other side, Gonzalez also gives some hope that he could have a bad day as it is safe to say that he's not the most consistent going around for sure

Hatte keine bessere gefunden. Ich weiß nicht was die bedeutet, aber zumindest waren die 96-Vereinsfarben drin.
