This match against felix highlights nihsioka getting screwed over by linesman again. The explanation for this must be more insidious than simple errors on their part right? Does the atp not want a 5'7" man to succeed on tour? To see what he has to go through is sad and sickening. :sad: :mad:

Yes, very much, without external factors such as cheating linesman, Yoshihito would be GOAT and have 20 slams. :eek:

Hopefully you're not referring to the point at 4-2* 40-30 which was a decision contested by Nishioka because Aliassime's BH looked clearly IN to me

Don't think it's discrimination by height I'm sure if Ivo played hypothetically you'd see the same thing. But there's no doubt he is disadvantaged in the first place on serve and some questionable calls will suck.

Even rubbish deserves a fair chance at glory.
There's no place for rubbish in my world. Nishioka is exactly that. Will be lucky to match the achievements of a Go Soeda or Tatsuma Ito

ATP has their agenda and the linesman have their favorites... It is not inconceivable one or the other plays a part here..
If there is an agenda it is wanting local players to do well in the lesser tournaments to get the live fans out.

Being treated unfairly within your profession is a whole different deal than just lack of popularity. Similarly to how Legislation against discrimination and public perception are related.

:spit: Is this a serious thread? 'Heightism' :haha:
Heightism is a socially acceptable form of discrimination in pretty much every place in the world. :shrug: But yes, this thread was made with semi-serious intentions. It is our duty as fans to question line judge bias. They dedicate their life to the sport which they are fans of. surely they must have favorites, no? Obviously heightism is a serious accusation that I'm making here, but I don't think it is without merit.

Victim of bad luck i must say. The only difference between him Zverev, Kokk, Coric and other young guns is his lack of serve and power because of his height. Talent is there on the other hand.
