Question Would you like to be chair umpire?

I think it's quite interesting job Especially in Zurich when the armchair is so comfortable to sit
Have you ever thought about being an umpire?
Greetings

Never. Seems difficult -- all the pressure... don't screw up!

I would love to. Its not like you have really long days of umpiring. You get to watch a beautiful game and get paid for it.

Hihi, that's a cool question, because I often thought about being a chair umpire. I would like to do that.

Agreed...I'd like to do it
...but getting the chance and time to get into it would be tough

They better not let me umpire Maria though or else it may be a very one-sided match

No, way to boring, and not to mention that you have such a tough job with all the close line calls

It sure is a great seat. I think it would be hard to enjoy the tennis, though, because you would be focusing on the ball and each and every near line touch. So probably no. Maybe for an exo with a mic so I could talk shit and not worry about the calls.
