Y did Serena have to tell the chair that the lines called the ball out at 3-1, 30-40? She heard him cause when Serena asked her , she the lines person self corrected. Should not the chair have immediately called for a replay before Henin sat down and the crowd got wound up?

I think she was explaining to Justine that the point had to be replayed...... because Justine was already sitting down....

I was really confused at the time, I thought Justine has won the point, although it looked possibly close to me - anyone see a hawkeye?

Right...but y did it get that far...y did she not immediately call for the replay. She would not have called Justine back if Serena had not questioned her...My point is it should have been immediate way b4 Justine even sat down. No challenge was necessary as the linesperson overruled themselves...or am I wrong?

There was no challenge.... The chair over overrules and announces replay the point if *they* overrule... Justine did not hear the linesperson i believe.... When Serena was saying "she called it out" The chair was already talkin to Justine about it who was on her way to her seat. Serena and the chair knew what was going on.... everyone else was confused.
