Post Ridiculous Line-calls

What was the most wrong line-call youve seen in womens tennis?Mine was at the Sanex 2001 Championships.The line call toward the end of the match when she was playing against Kim Clijsters.It nearly made her lose the match <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

I think he's referring to the semifinal match against Lindsay.

The worst line call I saw was 1998 Chase first round, Lindsay vs. Sandrine.....the call was wide against Sandrine, but Leanne White refused to overrule and the crowd was crazy.

Sandrine was a terrific fighter in that match and almost took it, despite the huge crowd support for Lindsay. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Ummm i can think of one in womens tennis, but in the mens i can.

in ausopen 01, Greg vs Guga, Guga made a VERY wide serve on close to MP for greg and it was sooooooooooooo wide, and noone would over rule so Guga got an ace, and believe me was SOOO wide. The crowd went baslitic, boooing the umpire and all sorts.

Anyways Greg won <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

The best line dispute i seen, is ofcourse FrenchOpen 99 final...... Poor Marina... <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Still cant think of a line call that i thought was wrong though... Hmmmmmmmm.... maybe later i remember.

I remember that line call too! It was at least a foot and a half out on the replay

Oh and the FO99 one... well the line judge should have been shot. That's my humble opinion/two penneth.

I've seen alot of bad line calls, but the one that stuck with me was 1998 Wimbledon Venus vs. Jana. Venus was up 5-1 in the first set and ended up losing in straight sets because she was so pissed at the umpire. I felt really bad for her that match. I'm glad she's not like that anymore. I couldn't stand it if she crumbled like that all the time. I like the steely Venus much better.

It is best to keep your mouth shut and be presumed ignorant. Then to open it and remove all doubt.

The most ridicilous linecall was in wimbledon 98 when Andre played Tommy haas and Andre hit a ball realy out(it wasn`t even close) and it was given in but he still lost the match though, other ridicilous ones were in Eatbourne 98 when Steffi played Anna and at 4:4 Steffi hit two clear winners and they were given out and then Steffi got so pissed that she lost the match and the english media said that she started to get Mcenroe behavior(just give you impression how pissed she was)

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

95 US Open Final<br />Seles v. Graf<br />Seles served at 6-5 in the tiebreak, setpoint, and hit an ace right down the 'T'. Monica pumped her fist and yelled "YES!", then the ball was called out. Late call, and an improper one.

Monica would have won the set, but instead lost<br />6.7(6) 6.0 3.6

Conchita vs Venus at Chase 99.

Venus was leading 6-2 5-7 5-4, Conchita was serving with deuce, she hit a forehand and went to the net, venus tryied to pass her but conchita made a volley... the ball just was on the line but both umpires call it out and the fucking Venus also saying it was out, but in TV it was pretty clear it was in and the crow and the commentators saw it in also. It could be ad for Conchita and the match was very tied but well.. Venus seems to be liked by lines umpire in Usa.... i also remeber in her semis against Hingis at semis US Open'00 an ace which was out by a mille and it was called in...*lucky* *lucky*
