View Full Version : Is the Chair Ump's microfone not working?

Why does it sound like the chair umpire is screaming out the score? Is his microphone not working. What was all the screaming before the very first point of the match?

Oh, Lindsay is ON FIRE! Yay! :eek:

I was wondering the same thing. I was thinking ok well they have a pretty nice website, but maybe they should have taken some of that money and put it to some kind of sound system so the umps wouldnt have to yell. LOL..... Its pretty odd to hear thats for sure....

My thoughts exactly....I first thought it was some crazy ass fan.

What a stomping that was.......

Yeah I really hope Lindsay can get on a good roll this year. she seemed so confident today and losing only 5 games in three matches (against Schynder on clay!!) is amazing. Of course I want jenCap to take the tourney, but I wouldn't mind Lindsay getting her clay game on!

I liked the television coverage of this match. For once, it didn't seem "packaged". We got to hear the umpire, the crowd, the wind, the birds singing. It was more like being there than any other tennis telecast I've ever seen.

Wish we had more like it. With or without the microphone.

It was strange with the ump yelling the scores and I was wondering what went on in the beginning of the match before Patty started to serve also.

Before the match started, I thought I heard the crowd yelling for the umpire to turn on the microphone. Then everyone realized it wasn't working.
