Bad Calls This Year

Well, it looks like technology has finally caught up to the WTA...Which is great but it will eliminate much of the fun drama caused by badline calls. I am sure that this is mostly a good thing but I thought we should keep track of the matches 'this year' that are influenced by badline calls as they will most likely become obsolete in the near future.

#1 Mirza/Hinigs Dubai
There were at least 5 obvious calls that went against Martina in the first set, and the crowd was very obnoxious...of course she ended up winning it anyway and the smile on her face at the end of that 1st set was classic Hingis, P

Thw worst one has to be that 'ace' that Sharapova served to Dani at the AO this year. It was out by a mile!

One went with Sharapova at BP 4th ROund vs Dani
2 went agaisnt her at SF vs Jusitne
one bp at 2-3 to level it(3rd set)
one gp at 2-4 to make it 3-4 but she ended up losing and was down 2-5
but she won the next 2 games.
Imagine if Hawk eye was there
because Maria won 2 games to make it 5-4 before losing 6-4

Serena Williams
Vera Zvonareva
Ana Ivanovic


Petra Kvitova - Svetlana Kuznetsova - Li Na - Sloane Stephens - Madison Keys

Will Always Love Kim Clijsters and Elena Dementieva

*cough* Dokic ...

That call was not either clearly in or out, you couldn't even tell from the replay 100% and for the umpire to overule on MP on the opposite side of the court right in the corner .... stupid.

Another umpire summed it up perfectly in a match the very next day "I can't overrule that from here..."

"I will right wrongs & triumph over evil ... & that means you!"

OMG! EXACTLY!

RIDING THE 3AM ROLLERCOASTER

Anastasia Myskina my NO.1 favourite.
Daniela Hantuchova super eyecandy!
Emilie Loit heartbreaker.
Alize Cornet she's just 15!
Elena Dementieva pretty!
Amelie Mauresmo idol!
Svetlana Kuznetsova so fuckable! ps. She was never ugly!!

All the best to:
Nathalie Dechy, Caroline Wozniacki, Justine Henin-Hardenne,
Maria Sharapova, Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko,
Marion Bartoli, Aravane Rezai, Dinara Safina,
Victoria Azarenka, Olga Poutchkova
and all the other pretty players!


I like these players because they are HAWT HAWT HAWT!

yeah and thats why i think maria struggled with the bad line call at the end of the first set she must have been thinking deja vu..
it was terrible she lost all hope after that point and that doesnt surprise me why she is one of the top players to speak up and welcome the hawk eye.
lets hope at iw maria wont get any more bad line calls especially if its against justine, and also maybe now that miami has the hawk eye she can beat justine once more(as she beat her last year in miami)
