I need a list of atp chair umpires, any help is appreciated

So as the title says I need an internet address where I can have a list of at least some atp chair umpires. I googled a bit but couldn't find anything that suits
my needs ( i need this data for an application we develop at school)

And one more question about the serve rules.

If I served at 5-6 in a set and then won the game that means that my opponent serves first in the tie-break. But who is serving in the next game? My opponent or me or does it depend on who served last in the tie-break?

the one that serves first in the tie-break will return in the first game after the tie-break....

There are only a few guys holding a contract w. the ATP (like M. Lahyani, R. Grillotti, N. Chryst, C. Bernardes, G. Armstrong, L. Graff). The other group of pro-umpires holding a contract are from the ITF. The 2006 ITF-chairumpires are Sandra de Jenken, Enric Molina, Pascal Maria, Carlos Ramos, Alison Lang, Jake Garner and Andreas Egli. Other umps who officiate in pro-Tennis don´t have an official Contract with one of the big federations (the WTA doesn´t have its own group of chairumpires for example). I hope, this helps!

ATP Officials

Admnistrator of Rules & Competition: Gayle Bradshaw

Supervisors:
Gerry Armstrong - England (also Chair Umpire)
Tom Barnes - CA, USA
Pedro Bravo - Chile
Mark Darby - NY, USA
Ed Hardisty - England
Thomas Karlberg - Sweden
Paulo Pereira - Brazil
Carlos Sanches - Portugal

Chair Umpires:
Carlos Bernades - Brazil

Also, ITF has anothers umpires. I know that portuguese Carlos Ramos don't accept the approach of ATP (I think because $$$) and it's only in ITF (means Grand Slams, Davis Cup and, maybe, WTA Tour. No ATP Tour tournaments.)

Pascal is a member of the ITF officiating team, Mourier does not have a contract - neither with the ITF nor with the ITF!!

A little off topic, but what has become of Ann Lasserre (?) Ulrich? I assume she's Steve Ulrich's wife. She was always my favorite female ump. Is she retired?

Where are Kader Nouni and Manuel Messina :confused:

Boo Carlos Sanches is now official for ATP :sad: does that mean he won't come for Wrocław challenger again? :awww:

I know that less than gold badges work also at supervising smaller events ;) So do some umpires from PL :).

Messina & Nouni don´t have any contract either but nevertheless they work as fulltimers. Both are silver badges and only gold badges get contracts with the ITF or ATP.
Anne Lasserre-Ulrich (still married to Steve Ulrich!) is now working mostly as Supervisor/Referee at smaller ITF womens events.
Whether umpires work as referees on smaller events or not depend on if they have supervisor badges - it is a different formation and different exams for that!

Does it mean ATP umpires are less paid than the ITF ones ? It seems to me it's more work on the ATP tour :rolleyes:
I also think I saw Ramos in Moscow... or was he only at the girls matches :confused:

Kind of a weird thread bump, but I'm looking for the name of a specific umpire. I think he's American but he looks like he might Arabic. Anyone know who I'm talking about?

He's youngish, I guess, and has dark hair. Sorry, I don't really know how else to describe him, and I can't remember a specific match he's officiated.
