Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

I had a problems with a father of a player at last year U13 masters because He insulted me about some calls on the baseline. At kids&juniors tournaments the parents are the biggest problem because they should be very rude and some of them insults to umpires.

Wink Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

Yeah compared to other sports tennis is a silent type of sport so the crowd/parents misbehaving can't he hidden, whereas when i've played basketball over the years its hard to hear what the parents/crowds were saying

You can do both things. Sports management as a job and umpiring as a hobby.

Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

I will umpire at Zagreb Indoors. It's not sure Zagreb Indoors will be hell because there is a problem with a hall. Handball club has reserved hall in that time for their champions league matches

When a player gets mad next time, I hope s/he hits a ball right into your face as hard as possible.

Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

I umpired National U16 championships final as the chair umpire. I had bronze and white badge as a line umpires. I overruled a guy on the service line.

I hope when a player gets mad he hits a ball right into your face in the crowd.

Mihaela Testiban is such a nice person. I don't know what's your problem with her.

Congrats and good luck anyway.

Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

I'm umpiring 3 weeks in a row as a linesman (2 futures and Zagreb Indoors). At the men's national championships friend's match lasted almost 4 hours. I umpired 7 matches in the chair and 3 matches on the line.

yes, I changed my opinion about her, she helped a few croatian umpires to get their badges. She probably had a bad day in Portoroz.
