Electronic Review Spreads Wings To China

Tennis fans in Beijing will be the first fans outside of the United States to experience the excitement and intrigue of electronic review after tournament organisers of the China Open approved the use of Hawk-eye at this year’s tournament.

  The decision to use electronic review continues the international rollout of the line-calling technology and follows on from its successful implementation during the US Open Series with fans, players and broadcasters embracing the latest addition to the sport.

  “We closely followed the usage of electronic review during the US Open Series and after seeing how well the players and fans reacted, we decided that it was something that could add value to the experience of both fans and players at the China Open. We hope that the fans will really enjoy getting involved when line calls are close”, said China Open Tournament Director Ekkehard Rathgeber.

  Television fans in China will also benefit from the decision, with host broadcaster CCTV5 to show all the action during the tournament. Chief Executive Officer of CCTV, Jiang He Bin, says “Hawk-eye adds an extra dimension to the coverage for the fans watching at home. The added benefit of having the hawk-eye system at the China Open is we can show fans on TV when players should or shouldn’t have challenged”.

  “We would like to congratulate the China Open and CCTV5 for ensuring that fans in China will be able to enjoy the same value of entertainment that fans in the US have been treated to during the past few months. It is great news for tennis fans and for fans within the Asian region “says Brad Drewett, ATP Director -International Group.

  During the course of the US Open Series, the game’s leading male players made XXX challenges with a success rate of XX percent. Asian and Thai No.1 Paradorn Srichaphan, who will compete at this year’s China Open, made just one successful challenge from five attempts during the US Open Series, but is still very supportive of the new technology.

  “I have used hawk-eye a few times when I was in the United States and found it very easy and quick. The best thing is that the system encourages fans to really get more involved, you can hear them calling, “challenge, challenge” when a decision is very tight”.

  The China Open begins on Monday, September 11 and boasts a strong player field including world No, 2 and Spanish sensation Rafael Nadal, world No. 4 David Nalbandian and world No.6 Nikolay Davydenko.
