swankywanky: Langston: Not a single replay available from one of the line cameras?


It's the "$50,000 Nielsen Pro Tennis Champions" in Winnetka, Illinois, going on at the same time a Wimbledon for people who couldn't get in that tournament.  I'm thinking they were lucky to have the one camera.

oh_please: calm like a bomb: Makes me wonder what happened earlier in the match, if anything.  Did the chair blow several calls, or is this guy really just a huge douche?

I was thinking the same thing, but even if the chair had missed several calls, shiat happens, you deal with it. He was a huge douche either way. And it looked in to me.

Based solely on this video, I thought he was complaining that the other player's coach was yelling things from the stands like, for example, "Out!"  I don't know if he had complained to the ref about it previously, but he seems to say something like "Ask his coach."  If the ref isn't going to stop people in the stands from yelling during a point, especially if it's a coach, I could see him walking off.

Also, any real tennis players might be able to help me out (my wife and I hit around the ball, but just for fun) --  why do tennis pros have bags that are getting close to the size of my hockey bag?  I get having extra rackets and towels, etc.  But that bag he had on his back?  I could pack for two weeks in Europe in that thing.
