Hell yeah she is! I'm actually a fan of hers, such class :hearts:

And about where she is, she's prolly umpiring a mensmatch somewhere. ATP-tour totally stole her from us :rolleyes:

I really like her, she is a very good umpire, she is my favourite.
Then, I can't forget her magic words "Jeu, set et match, mademoiselle Myskina" the day of the RG final 2004. :D

The fact that she is the only umpire who ATP hires to work at later stages of GS's and Davis Cups, no doubt.

I hvae seen her a lot this year at the US Open and she is tough as a nail.

Hands down, she has the best voice for umpiring in the business.

She especially sounds great in Arthur Ashe Stadium :drool: :hearts:

Love that husky voice of hers, plus she holds a special place in my heart as she was the chair during the Serena/Sharapova '05 AO SF thriller.

THE most monotone chair umpire ever.

Can someone post a pick of Sandra? I'm not sure who she is

My fave is Mariana Alves

how is she better than the others, unless of course she nevermakes mistakes like the AO 04 that may have cost kim the slam. As for being tough, i have never seen an umpire change the scoreline just because a player was throwing a tantrum

Dan23
Nov 8th, 2006, 05:42 AM
No I dont think she is....shes made a couple of poor over-rules in the past

Nov 8th, 2006, 05:43 AM
BIG FAT NO! she's been on my blacklist ever since AO2004 final :rolleyes:

I always thought Jane Harvey was good

I love her and Her french connection with Justine!!!! :devil:

Nov 8th, 2006, 07:44 AM
i don't mind her actually. she composes herself extremely well when a player questions a call & she does like it's second nature. so yes i'd say she's a good umpire.

Nov 8th, 2006, 07:46 AM
Yes i love Sandra.

fufuqifuqishahah
Nov 8th, 2006, 07:47 AM

I'm sure she doesn't mind. It really is a step up in any umpire's career to work on ATP instead of WTA let alone ATP pays better.

i think Carlos Ramos is too a good umpire with a very cool voice......:)

i think Alison Lang and Lynn Welch are so boring...........:rolleyes:

Nov 8th, 2006, 04:59 PM
I always think that Kim could have two slam titles by now if would not have called that one ball out.
So she's definitely not the best umpire.
