Meh, it's shopped.  I can tell by the pixels granules of clay.

Denying refs instant replay in making a call is stupid because everyone else - the fans, players, announcers, etc. - all have great access to instant replays. There's NO good reason to make the refs scapegoats by doing this.

At least he wasn't taking pictures of skidmarks.

All I see is a bunch of clay with a white line through it...... He should blow that up and sell it as modern art.

It's tennis.  You don't even need to walk it off.  You can stand it off.  And like the net on 1 out of every 5 serves, you'll get over it.

You might want to ease up a bit if your balls are leaving marks.

KaiserRoll: Except from the picture there is no way to indicate in or out.


Touching the line at all is "in" - there's a scuff of white chalk that I suppose he's claiming is the ball mark.

The ref's word should be law, otherwise the games will just be non-stop arguments.
 
2013-05-28 11:03:37 AM  
Can't see anything on the picture and which side of the line is in or out.

The guy gets swept 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 and that one call is why he thinks he lost?

Being a former player, can tell you how easy it's to mistake a different ball mark for the current one, sometimes by up to a foot.

It's about how players process their anticipated court coverage and yes, I said playa.
 
2013-05-28 11:24:46 AM  
If it's 99% out, it's 100% in.
 
2013-05-28 11:27:44 AM  
Players aren't allowed to talk to their coaches during the match.  I can't imagine having a cell phone is legal.

Christ, Roland Garros is run by a bunch of backwards Luddites. And no roof, either.

Yep...this clearly settles the issue in my mind

If any part of the ball touches any part of the line, the ball is called in. This was 100% in.

I liked the one from a few weeks ago where the player took the portable TV camera from the cameraman and pointed it at the mark himself so the crowd could see it on the screen.

Have you shopped for actual high performance tennis shoes recently? Everyone is making running shoes and tennis shoes have fallen out of favor.

I spent good money on a pair of New Balance 806's for some decent lateral control on wood. Nike comes close with some of their basketball shoes but they think size 14 feet are four inches wide.

Oh, and Lotto doesn't make size 14 either, apparently. It's like there's one company that begrudgingly wants my business. I should compete with them.

Why don't they adopt laser makers and take the damn judges out of the loop, you cannot argue with a farking laser spot

Yes please: Players aren't allowed to talk to their coaches during the match.  I can't imagine having a cell phone is legal.


It's likely in his bag. Cell phones have way too much personal data in 'em to just be leaving 'em in the locker room.

/looks out, but since they don't have much clay near the lines it's impossible to tell whether part of that mark might touch the line or not.

He's under 30. So, yes. He was also Tweeting between serves and sexting Victoria Azarenka.
