Mariana Alves is umpiring Jankovic vs Vaidisova Sydney SF

In case you don't know who Mariana Alves is she was the umpire at US Open 2004 Capriati vs Serena and we all know what happened there

Don't expect too many good calls in this match

Re: Mariana Alves is umpiring Jankovic vs Vaidisova Sydney SF

Does this deserve a thread? I'm pretty sure she's been working consistently since that match. I think she was only suspended for the rest of USO '04 after the Serena/Jen debacle.

(Boy, would Shot Spot have been great there!... or any replay system at all, lol)

Just imagine the replay/hawk eye system during that match..it would have shown the ball MILES out, how would Alves have reacted? or Serena?

Actually, Alvez was close to blameless in that incident. They broke the rules and made her work too many matches back to back. There is a reason the back-to-back restrictions are in place. Unfortunately, Alvez got all the flak, and the ones who caused the problem got off with no adverse publicity.

The only country she is not welcome to to chair matches is the USA.

Re: Mariana Alves is umpiring Jankovic vs Vaidisova Sydney SF

1 point wasnt going to give serena the match.

in wimbledon final 2005, venus hit a serve that was wide AND long but they still called it in

this happens all the time so i dont understand why serena should get so much publicity

Serena not just lost the point but the game - the first game of the 3rd set. It could have changed the result of the match, you have no idea nor does anybody. And while bad calls happen all the time, that was one of the worst I have ever seen PLUS it was an overrule by the umpire on the other side of the court.
