Hey
does somebody know the name of the referee in the match Dementieva vs Cibulkova?
I've seen the lady in Birmingham and I don't remember the name of her....

I'm pretty sure she is the head umpire for the tour. I sat behind her while watching Bondarenko/Kutuzova , she was doing an evaluation on a new umpire and was making a list of all the things he had done wrong, which was quite a lot.

It was 2 full sheets of violations.

At one point in the 2nd set, the linesman called a foot fault on A. Bondarenko and the umpire confirmed to the linesman he heard him but still he ignored the call and play continued - thankfully Kutuzova won the point.
