The ITF announces that the latest version of the Hawk-Eye electronic line calling review system (‘Hawk-Eye Officiating’) has, following a series of tests, met the criteria set by a committee comprising representatives of the ITF, ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour for use in reviewing decisions made by on-court officials.
The ITF Technical Manager, Dr Stuart Miller, said, “This result reflects the hard work put in by both Hawk-Eye and our committee over the past year. We have seen significant improvements in the system, especially since the last evaluation in July. We would like to thank the professional tours, tournaments and manufacturers for supporting the evaluation process.”
Although the committee has reached the conclusion of its evaluation process with ‘Hawk-Eye Officiating’, it recommends that stadium-specific testing is conducted prior to implementation at a tournament.
