Maybe she fell asleep and woke up at a flash of yellow.

Re: Lynn Welch - is she nuts?

Lol that was the worst overrule I've ever seen including that Rena vs Capriati mess. Yeah at least Yanina could challenge that ridiculous call.

That's what I was thinking of as well. Thank goodness for hawk eye. Serena wasn't so lucky.

Re: Lynn Welch - is she nuts?

ESPN Latin America 's anchors said she was watching Cilic-Delpo's match

Re: Lynn Welch - is she nuts?

She's the most incompetent umpire I've seen. Always seems to be making wrong calls

Re: Lynn Welch - is she nuts?

Working at many tennis tournaments I have seen Lynn in action several times and feel she is an excellent chair umpire. Does not make many rogue overrules and is very accurate. Everyone makes mistakes and with the amount of time she spends in a chair of course she will make a few calls that are not correct. Still if she says a ball is in/out. I would put money on it in Vegas as she is almost always spot on. I do not consider her to make a lot of overrules or corrections but saw her make 4 in a match and hawkeye confirmed all 4 to be correct.

Not all chairs are created the same but Lynn has my confidence.

Re: Lynn Welch - is she nuts?

She must be senile

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.
