in comparison to European, Austrlian, etc..?

The either geriatric, fat, obese, with thin no-muscles legs, with ugly hair (looking like un-washed) or something else... It really is hurting my eyes.

Is it something different how they pick them in the States?:scratch:

They're umpires, not supermodels.

Should you really be focusing on line umpires while watching a tennis match?

All the latin umpires like Carlos Ramos and Alves are fine.

Interesting idea I guess, just not for me.

Because tennis in America is not as popular relatively as in Europe for example, so you have a smaller pool to draw from. Therefore you'll get less people who care about tennis deeply -- the ones who look good are the ones spending their time @ the gym and not line judging. :P Additionally, Americans are less fashionable than Europeans.

Also part of the reason why you see much older ball boys and ball girls in US matches -> less people interested in tennis, much looser restriction on who can do these things.
