Challenge system breaks. Umpire calls a let?!

Zheng hit a volley which was called in, and Ivanovic challenge, but the machine didn't work. The umpire proceeded to ask them to play a let. Is this the official rule?

OK they fixed the hawkeye and found out the volley was out so it's Advantage Ivanovic now after 5 minutes of arguing.

And Zheng hit a wild ball about 6 foot wide on the next point.

Zheng was up 40-0 in that game
Anyway, the ball was originally called in, but Ivanovic challenged. The challenge system was down, but the umpire overruled the call, so 40-AD Ana (BP). Zheng got pissed, argued with the umpire forever. The challenge system started working again and the ball was out, so AD Ivanovic again.

I thought this was the rule too

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

yep the umpire messed up twice, if hawkeye dosen't work the original call stands and also overrules must be instant, so to overrule after 2 mins waiting for hawkeye is against the rules.

Poor Zheng has to battle the Umpire and the Hawkeye system as well as a former number 1 – even if it’s just a pretender with a sore thumb like Ivanovic.

Poor Ana, had to battle bad calls by the linesmen without a working Hawkeye system

No she didn't it was Ana who challenge the in call got told hawkeye was down and to replay the point. After 5 minutes hawkeye came back and Ana was right the ball was out.

Ana's the one who almost got screwed

Ana won that point. They didn't replay that point. Ana was right and she won the game there. The ball was clearly wide.
