Paris line calls - questionable and often wrong???

Interested to hear others opinions on this.

So far I have seen:

Players challenging the line calls a lot and more often than usual getting them right
Even with Hawk eye on the main court umpires are overiding
Umpires are calling it even when the linesman does because the linesman has been delayed

Maybe it's the lighting I saw Gonzalez dazzelled by it yesterday or maybe it's just me overeacting :scratch:

It's pretty bad so far in the Gasquet/Tsonga match

The funniest part is when the players challenge his overules and are always wrong :D :cool: .

The chair umpires have to overrule if they are sure in their decision, no mind there is Hawk eye.

Agreed but they are less likely to do it unless it's right under their noses when there's hawkeye. Just watching Fed and Ivo Ivo serve was called out, umpire overules, fed challenges - fed loses challenge.

There just seems to be a lot of errors in this tournament - more than usual
