It can't be honest mistakes if they keep benefiting one side, usually the home side, far more than the other (which is what was the case here: the home player getting almost all the crucial benefit-of-the-doubt calls).

It was a typical case of "homer umpiring" which is a disease not only in tennis but in sports in general.
