Help me understand this...

Y did Serena have to tell the chair that the lines called the ball out at 3-1, 30-40? She heard him cause when Serena asked her , she the lines person self corrected. Should not the chair have immediately called for a replay before Henin sat down and the crowd got wound up?

I think she was explaining to Justine that the point had to be replayed...... because Justine was already sitting down....

Re: Help me understand this...

I was really confused at the time, I thought Justine has won the point, although it looked possibly close to me - anyone see a hawkeye?

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Help me understand this...

Right...but y did it get that far...y did she not immediately call for the replay. She would not have called Justine back if Serena had not questioned her...My point is it should have been immediate way b4 Justine even sat down. No challenge was necessary as the linesperson overruled themselves...or am I wrong?

There was no challenge.... The chair over overrules and announces replay the point if *they* overrule... Justine did not hear the linesperson i believe.... When Serena was saying "she called it out" The chair was already talkin to Justine about it who was on her way to her seat. Serena and the chair knew what was going on.... everyone else was confused.
