Alison Lang the best chair umpire by far!

She's the only one who has the guts to over rule calls and she also has a great way to show her authority....

The one who sounds like a man and hates Jankovic is the best. After that mariana alves

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Funny you said that, When she just confirmed a ball was out to Jankovic and it was clearly in.

Yeah I saw that, typical - but I prefer over ruling to just sit there and wait for a challenge, even though they turn out wrong sometimes.

^ No that's not her. I remember vividly, it was the one umpiring Safina VS Lisicki 09 Wimbledon QF.

Umpires are human and make mistakes, but overall, yes Alison is the best umpire.

Re: Alison Lang the best chair umpire by far!

I like her.

Did anyone see last year - I think it was Wimbledon - when Alison Lang used Hawkeye to check if a ball was out? It wasn't a player challenge, it was Alison herself who wanted to check. The commentators took the piss, saying Alison Lang now has two challenges left etc, but I thought it was a wise choice.
I never saw an umpire use it themselves apart from that one time.
