She obviously missed many calls, and is not doing her job. She should be suspended for this, and so should some of the linesmen. Either that, or demoted.

When the Wimbledon umpire screwed up, he was sent home packing. The same should happen with this one. She overruled a good call on the other side of the court, but managed to miss correcting a bad one that was right in front of her. She did a horrible job. I can understand human error, but this was just inexcusable careless. I rarely get worked up about calls because they are so hard to call sometimes, but I am really upset about the way that was handled. I know that if the commentators are appalled and can't stop talking about it, this is big.
