This AO has the worst line calling I've ever seen

Seriously, every match I've seen has had at least one poor call that effected the outcome of the match and multiple other atrocious calls. It doesn't even make sense since all the tournaments use basically the same lines people. I even saw that little asian woman who Serena tried to kill :lol:

They really need to think of installing hawkeye on every court that has it, or even better changing the rules. I think the chair umpires should have more discretion about who wins the point rather than strictly following the "replay the point" rule if the opponent gets a racket on the ball.

Tell me what you think or just gripe next time you see a bad line call at the AO :wavey:

Yes, I agree.
This years linesmen are atrociously bad.
They have to install the Hawk-Eye on every court, at least in Grand Slams.

The line calling against Almagro was absolutely pathetic, I'm surprised he stuck around to finish the match.

In every match I've seen in this AO (and I've seen a lot) there have been tons of incredible linesjudge-mistakes.

The fact that the third biggest court (second before Hisense came) doesn't have hawkeye talks wonders about the calling in the tournament :o

Every match has had some calls that were atrociously bad :retard:

Mannarino refused to shake the umpire's hand after loosing to Gasquet beacause of the linescalls too.

The Almagro/Andreev match is the worst I saw so far this year.
