Players and the Challenge system

Is there anything more annoying then a player who get upset over a supposed bad call and expects the umpire to overrule it but doesnt challenge because they only have 1 more remaining. If you are so sure that you expect an overrule then why not challenge? I watched a bit of the womens semis and Ivanovic was angry a few times that the umpire didnt overrule yet she didnt challenge even though she still had 1 more left.

I think sometimes it because they have to stop play in a neutral rally which is pretty risky unless you're absolutely 100% sure. If the umpire overrules it then you don't need to stop play and theres no risk for the player.
