I've seen a lot worse with a 10 K.
That's actually not a bad one.

In 10k ITFs it's mandatory to have atleast 1 line judge on court during the main draw. Whever the chair thinks it's necessary, is where he/she will be.

My favourite detail is that fellow nonchalantly leaning on the wall.

:haha: People think there are linesmen and ballkids at $10k's :spit:... you are lucky if you even get a chair umpire at a $25k! :lol:

:scratch: I don't think that's right. I have been to $10ks and was recently at a $25k in Melbourne, and they only had a chair umpire for the MD, and NO linesmen, and at quallies, there were not chair umpires even (for some matches anyway)!

Wow that's surprising. I'm not sure if it's true, but that's what a white badge official, Alison Dias, was telling me at 25k Toronto.

For a $10,000 event it doesn't look half bad. I'm not sure what you are expecting for a 10k event. What, were you expecting ball boys and lines men decked out in Adidas under stadium lights? lol.

50k's sometimes have one ballboy and one linesman on each side, but 10k's :lol:

but watching 10K's is fun :yeah:
you either see players slaughtering really mediocre players or you see a fight for ranking points and money between two talented players :)

I've been there, it was actually quite nice. there were like 3 big steps along the side of the court for people to sit on and watch, very relaxed. You don't see it in the vid because I was filming from my seat into the other direction, logically ;)

There can be linesmen and ballikds at 10K's in the latter stages of the tournament.
They had some at the 10K in Wahlstedt but it was a combined event (men/women) which helps. There were stands and quite a lot of spectators too.
Indoors can be a different story.

Maybe it's just from Tennis Canada or so? Coz I was at a $25k in Mt. G before, and the had no linespeople or anything, and also at $10k's in Amsterdam and Brussels.
