Re: Why can't there be unlimited challenges?

Cause then players could challenge almost every point. They already raised it from 2 to 3 challenges a set. It's enough.

LOUISA CHIRICO 60 60 IRINA-CAMELIA BEGU 63 62 KARIN KNAPP 63 67 60

Re: Why can't there be unlimited challenges?

I don't think they would challenge every point. Players typically feel when the ball is out.

It would slow the game down, be used to change momentum and stall, every time a player knew they were not going to make the shot, they could just challenge and get to replay the point....bad idea.

And that would be the Chairs job to judge a reaction shot between a real shot. It's not hard to distinguish.

Re: Why can't there be unlimited challenges?

But if you challenge and you're wrong, you lose the point.

Still, unlimited challenges would just slow things down even more. Some players would use it every point.

This. Some players even slow down matches by repeatedly checking for marks instead of challenging.

Meanwhile, he's more than happy to use it for as much as he claims to dislike it.

He challenges for the heck of challenging, to waste time, and to demonstrate how he can abuse the system. Most of the balls he challenges are out/in by a foot or two. It would be entertaining if he gets a dozen challenges a set.

Re: Why can't there be unlimited challenges?

There should be more challenges allowed. They have the technology, so get the calls right.
I've seen chair umpires over rule correct calls. I've seen matches lost on bad calls.
Get the calls right. Get the right winner.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
