Harkleroad and Jackson to play first Replay Match.

Ashley and Jamea start off play on the stadium tomorrow and therefore will be the first to try out the replay system in competition. It will be interesting to see how it goes. If I were them I would challenge a call early on even if it were obvious just to test out the system and get used to it.

Yea. I don't think they will be using the replay system much.
Ashley Harkleroad doesn't hit a very speedy ball and Jamea doesn't produce her own pace well.
Unless the linesman are blind there won't be much use of it.
There could be but the calls the linesman made will likely be the right calls.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

The replay system was already in use at Hopman Cup earlier this year and got very positive reactions from all involved. You are right, though, that this is the first match of WTA/ATP tours that use instant replay.

I think it will work great. It certainly adds to fairness of the game.

If anyone is going to Miami, please watch this match and take pictures of the screen when they challenge a call.

Now they need to make sure they tell those of us who are watching livescores when a challenge is taking place, otherwise there will be lots of speculation in the scoring threads as to the reason for the pause...

If I were one of them I'd use it asap just to be the first player to use it in an offical match. Who doesn't want to go down in history as a first. Yes Misa was the first to use it at HC but that's not part of either tour.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Actually, this is not true - Hawkeye was used at HC - the first to use it were Peng and Krajicek!

It is officially part of the tour! The head to heads count... it's just an ITF tourney, like the GS's not a WTA (well that would be kinda hard having the guys there and all).

by "in competition" I meant in actual competition. The Hopman Cup doesn't count...
