I'm going to be one as well! Well, I'll try my best and do whatever I can.
Here in Slovenia there is an exam to pass and then as a practical part of the exam you go and umpire one youngster match while they are watching and marking you!
Can't wait for the exam...it might be this year, if not so then next year.
My dreams are to umpire a challenger series or Umag ATP match.
Of course...there is a loooong way to go and only a few people make it so far.
EDIT: And by the way, I'll have to adjust my signature and bashing WTA
Surely I'll have to umpire some lady's match sooner or later so I better get my attitude better...In 10 years time I'll be worshiping WTA, who knows.
: Yes, I'm a girl. Profile pic is me. I watch and play tennis since 13 (1997). I don't play ITFs anymore, I have a job now. MTF-> uncovering my naughty side since 2007.
