I remember this child calling the lines at some of the matches at Monte Carlo this year. Did anyone else see him?

No, no- I was just so shocked to hear this young voice calling "out!" The cam then showed someone, and he looked about 10, seriously.

If the person can do the job, and doesn't mind taking abuse from players at times, I'm all for it!
