Exclamation WTA Invited Japanese USO Lineswoman That Called Serena For Footfault To Work Doha YEC

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/25/sp...is/25doha.html

Williams lost to the eventual champion in the two Grand Slam singles events she failed to win. She was beaten by Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia in the quarterfinals of the French Open. Then, in much-less-dignified circumstances, she was beaten by Clijsters in the semifinals of the United States Open after being jerked around the baseline and ultimately docked a point with match point against her for threatening a lineswoman who had had the temerity to call a foot fault.

Williams is still facing potentially stiff sanctions — including a large fine or a suspension — as the International Tennis Federation investigates the incident. The line judge involved, a Japanese national who has yet to be identified publicly, will not be in Doha, which averts a possible reunion with Williams. Allaster said the line judge had been invited to take part but declined, citing family reasons.

“We would have welcomed her, and she was on the official invitation list,” Allaster said.

I like you usually, but is there a need to post every tennis related news item in General Messages? Go make the Na-Goat Chatthread or something.

Why would she not be invited? I was talking to a line judge on grandstand this year, and she told me how she had been line-judging for 9 years before she got to do the US Open. The woman, to be an official on Ashe, has a lot of experience, and would have been on the invitation list.

Me thought the line judge and ballboys were just local people that live near the tournament

isn't only the chair umpire the only one that travel with the tour

To be a line judge at the slams and other tour events requires a lot of training and time. The lady I talked to came from Miami.

Re: WTA Invited Japanese USO Lineswoman That Called Serena For Footfault To Work Doha

I could just see it now, Serena playing a match with that lineswoman making calls, with Mariana Alves in the chair. That would be interesting...

Re: WTA Invited Japanese USO Lineswoman That Called Serena For Footfault To Work Doha

Well.. Im actually surprised a little by this news.

However, it's not like the linesjudge was just some scrub picked up from the local courts of Queens. She's very qualified from what I've heard and to be on Ashe in a night match for the semi's, you've got to be pretty good.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: WTA Invited Japanese USO Lineswoman That Called Serena For Footfault To Work Doha

I am glad she's not there, but honestly one call doesn't make her a corrupt official.

Ball boys/girls are picked from the locale where the event is being held, right? But to be a line judge, on Ashe, definitely means you have cred. So I'm not surprised she was invited. It would just be best if she never worked a Serena match again.
