Well maybe they should be stricter on their application process, make a few mistakes and a player is kicked out of the tournament...no rematch. The same approach should happen for linesmen, especially as their mistakes can ruin a player's career.

Re: Was officiating always this corrupt before hawkeye?

anyone remember the mauresmo vs dementieva final here in paris 2009? don't tell me there's no bias!

edit: i did wonder if it's not technically possible to have hawkeye here, as it's odd to have a premier without it. isn't there a stadium in china that just can't have it, for some obscure techie reason? maybe the same here.
