Arrow `Hawk-Eye Officiating´

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.
What do you think about this?

Anything that can make the game more accurate and fair has to be beneficial. Hopefully it'll stop a large percentage of bad line calls and players being frustrated by them. I just hope it's accurate so the players can learn to trust it.

Stadium-specific testing is essential.

Might be interesting to have the computer count the 30 seconds between points, and automatically give the point to the receiver if the server takes too long. The chair umpire could overrule if it's the receiver that's stalling.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I hope Hawkeye is used in the close or controversial calls, possibly limiting challenges to perhaps three per set. (excluding Chair overules).

Last year the WTA refused to use it citing that it could be in error by 3/16 of an inch.
What a Joke! Human linemen sometimes get it wrong by almost a foot.
Serena got burned by such a call at the USO 2004 vs Jennifer. (The ball was in!!")
Lindsay got a very bad call while playing Venus in the Wimby final. Venus' serve was out by at least EIGHT inches. (It was scored an ACE)

3/16 sounds prety good to me.

lets not forget about Alicia Molik against Davenport at Aus Open the result would have most likely been different

I hope it is soon implemented and implemented with the most accuracy possible. I find it disapointing that it might not come into play until 2007 since we've been talking about putting it in since 2004.

So does this mean tournaments telecasted by stations using the term "Hawk-Eye" will use the system, and not tournaments telecasted by ESPN that use "Shot-Spot." Is there ACTUALLY a difference between the two? Personally I just assumed they were the same thing.

i think having the players challenge is rediculous. It should be up to the umpire to check if they want to and decline to check if they want to. What if Serena had used up her three challenges before her US Open QF incident in 04???!!

If u challenge it and u were right it shouldnt cost u ur challenges. But if ya get it wrong then it should. Then the players would think twice about doing it. And how unfair is it if in a long match thier are 4 bad calls and u can onli question 3????? I wonder if they can question foot faults?? Which for the men would probley be widley used
