Sandra De Jenken to take over as French Open referee

With effect from 1 January 2008, Sandra de Jenken Eversmann – who has joined the French Tennis Federation as Assistant Director – will take over responsibility for tennis operations at the French Open tournament.

She is replacing Stéphane Simian, who had held these responsibilities at Roland Garros for more than seven years. Sandra, who holds a degree in sports science, had a long and successful career as an international tennis umpire which saw her officiate at 13 Grand Slam finals, including the men's singles at Roland Garros and the Australian Open in 2007. She also umpired at the Olympic Games in Sydney and Athens.

Good luck Sandra!

She was the umpire in the 2004 Australian Open final between Henin and Clijsters and overruled a call and called a ball out that was on the line by the fuzz of the ball.

It's still really sad to see one of the best chair umpires, male or female, leaving the game. She's really well respected within the tennis community and will be missed.

Re: Sandra De Jenken to take over as French Open referee



the best ref-man or woman
yes she makes mistakes-but every ref does

she tends to get the balance of interfering and letting the flow of the match go absolutely right

she understands the game better than most refs i love her-and her voice nearly as much as Steve Ulrichs

Shame we won't be seeing her in the chair anymore though.

Re: Sandra De Jenken to take over as French Open referee

Well, good for her. But I always enjoyed matches that she chaired. She was firm but fair, and I think all the players really respected her - respect which she had earned. What a wonderful career she can look back on.
