Bad Line calls at the US OPEN 2004.

Let's give parity here. There were tons of crap line calls
all week. The general calling was shit this year.

Players were getting phantom foot fault calls (Kiefer, JHH)
The Bovina -vs- LD match had loads of bad line calls.

I'd say there wasn't one single match that I viewed w/out
bad line calls this year.

Don't take it out on the players.

Kiefer's foot-fault calls were ALL justified.

Greenout i agree. the difference is that in this case it may have determined the outcome of the match.

I know and it bites. It should'nt have to come down to this.
I'm all for instant replay. Without recorded visual proof, it just leaves
the match hanging with bitterness for everyone.
