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.
