No idea about Dubai.
Vika hitted a return on the line that was called out, Sara touched it so wanted to replay the point but the umpire said that missed the point both players were really angry and Vika even called the supervisor and of course point lost for Sara they wasted 5 mins

doubles was streamed?
what happened?

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

The match is online on youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYeOBmDm65E

The controversy starts at about 17.05
I think the commentators are right and the point was Vika's, but what a way to mess up, Julie Kjendlie. "Hey Vika, help me out, should you get the point or not?" Seriously? Who in their right mind would say "nah, it's hers"

I may not dare to show you
I might just walk away or crawl under another rock
It's so tempting

Haha, I also think the point was Vika's, but how can an umpire say that she doesn't remember whether Sara touched the ball or not and ask Vika to tell her what she thinks, lol. And we thought we had seen everything in tennis!

I am not sure if that is right because I couldn't hear that, but on Spanish tv they said she had told her to forget the controversial point and also well played Sara.

BTW, doubles match start in less than two hours. Good luck girls!

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

Heart & grit by Cichis!!
Even if they don't play at their best, still manage to win!! This is one of the reasons because they are the #1 in the world!!

About the controversy, the Italian commentator said that was a point to be replayed.. Partisan position?

Re: Cheering Thread: Australian Swing

Amazing Even when they're not playing well, one of them is always able to step it up enough to fight their way through the match

Nice birthday present for Roby too.
