Red face Lynn Welsh :o

Anyone else thinks she is a bad umpire? I mean, she never ever overrules any calls that the linesman made and even if the ball is metres out and she knows it she lets the players challenge.

The Challenge System isnt supposed to make umpires useless. When a player askes if the ball was in or out the umpire has to say his opinion and not always say "I dont know, its close, you can check it". Lynn Wels is the perfect example for a passive, useless umpire. Her annoying voice doesnt help either.

Sadly, there are only few umpires who dont rely on the system and dare to overrule.

Re: Lynn Welsh :o

but the new system i not very helpfull to make a chair-umpire selfconfident to overrule.
i mean, when the chair-umpire overrule and the player check it then the chair-umpire looks like a idiot if his decision was wrong

And she seriously NEVER overrules. Surprised to see many think she is the best umpire.

An umpire is paid for what they are doing. If they overrule, and they were wrong it doesnt matter - they are showing that they care, that they pay attention on whats going on on the court. I am pretty sure players appreciate a more active umpire than a Lynn Welsh who only gives the scores. At least that is what I think.

Re: Lynn Welsh :o

Terrible umpire she never overrules at the right times. I remember the Sharapova - Pennetta match at Wimbledon last year and Flavia hit a BH winner that was called out but actually hit a line that was right beside Welsh and she just said she didn't know

Grassonkova.
