Let's hope that he tweeted/sent that picture to the ATP right away and rub it in if the chair umpire made the wrong call. That's what I call using the latest technologies to the fullest. He has every right to do that.

Only saw him once or twice, he's a huge clown. Glad GOATredo got rid of him.

What if he was looking at the wrong mark? Surely he wasn't shown a mark that showed that the ball was IN.

For those wondering, here is the exchange between Hemery and the umpire in French (I translated based on the video posted above)

Ref: go ahead, you can go look at the mark
Hemery: it's this mark?
Ref: yep, that one
Hemery: Dude, you just fucked me. You should be ashamed. You really don't give a fuck.
Ref: If you carry on you're gonna get a code violation
Hemery: Give me one. Go on, give me one. I swear. Give me a code.
*ref gives code violation*
*Hemery goes to take a pic of the mark*
Ref: Calvin, that's enough, thank you
Hemery: You just robbed me on break point, how can you do this? No big deal huh, what do you want me to say? You're the ref. I can't say anything huh. [inaudible]

If anyone understands the very last sentence before the video cuts, feel free to add, even as a native french speaker I couldn't make it out

Hilarious either way (and disgusting call)
