Is Azderaki Making a Mockery of the Hindrance Rule?

Shouting "Come on!" or "Allez!" prematurely because you think you've hit a winner is hindrance.

Grunting in pain because you have cramp is, apparently, hindrance.

Screaming as loud as a jack-hammer to put your opponent off, however, is perfectly fine.

It seems the only instance in which Azderaki won't call hindrance is when a player is deliberately trying to hinder her opponent.

Re: Is Azderaki Making a Mockery of the Hindrance Rule?

She did give 2 or three points to Serena because she yelped during play. Maybe she tried to give a leeway but at the end she had to do it.

It's weird cause she gave it to Serena, to give Serena a break point in those games.

Re: Is Azderaki Making a Mockery of the Hindrance Rule?

It is a bit puzzling because she replayed the point that Serena would have won anyway, and then she gave 2 points to Serena which were up for grabs, one of them on a groan I hardly heard.

Re: Eva?

Can't believe I used to have respect for her.

Great that Razzano still gave her a handshake though, much credit to her.

Re: Is Azderaki Making a Mockery of the Hindrance Rule?

If you violate a rule in tennis more than once, doesn't the punishment get incrementally more severe every time? In other words, first offense is a warning, second is a point, third is a game?

Re: Eva?

She's doing her job at the end of the day- you may not agree with it but rules are rules, she has to enforce them.

Re: Eva?

The first two hindrance calls were absolutely correct. The third one was iffy.

Then she should do likewise every time Sharapova, Azarenka, Williams, Schiavone, et al yell out during play, i.e. every damn point.
