Bitter about 04 AUS final much? :p;)

I love Sandra de Jenken. Other than that blip during the 04 Aus Open final, (and the slight one with Serena-Molik at Wimbledon 07), I think she does the best job at umpiring. She did the Mens Finals at the Australian and French open last year.:worship:

does anyone know the name of the one from portugal who made the worst over-rule in tennis history, when she called a serena williams backhand out even though it was well inside the line furthest away from the chair. it was against capriati in the 04 USO. shes is the WORST umpire ever!!!

:lol::lol: You have no idea. By far one of the worst line calls in the history of tennis, as far as I know. The 2004 US Open line call also ranks up there, but at least that wasn't a slam final. (Even though Serena got like 2 bad calls in that final game)

She handled it poorly after the match as well. Instead of admitting her mistake (Kim forgave her saying everyone makes mistakes) she denied the clear evidence that it was in. :rolleyes: If she ever needs a kidney, she best not come ask me. ;) :p

not really about that.
Hamburg Masters 2008 the worst performance of all.
He repeatedly made mistakes.
First he screwed kohlscrieber during the match point and helped that cheat robredo win it.
Second, against marat safin tomas berdych match. he almost screwed safin as well but thankfully his performance didn't have any effect on the match.

my point is umpires make mistakes. They are human. There are several occasions where Capriati got screwed in GS events as well.
Even some people who are picking Sandra De jenkin as the best umpire. Even she made mistakes which costed her Cljisters a possible title. Atleast serne's match isn't a final. But still these kind of things happens.


the fact is
players got to deal with it and play on.

First: His afro-hairstyle :silly: .
Second: He wasn't able to pronounce the German word for forty (vierzig) correctly. It always sounded either like "Pfirsich" (peach), "Wirsing" (savoy cabbage) or "würzig" (spicy). And before I went to the tournament, I watched a music video at home ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=7ync5XfNNPo ), and somehow I expected Kader the whole time to come down from his chair and dance in that genial 70's style as the people in that video do :rolls:

I once heard at a Wimbledon qualifier:

Umpire: "Is he your coach? Coaching is not allowed" (Re: The coach!)
Player: "He is a friend he doesn't know about tennis"
Umpire: "Can you get him to talk in English..."
Player: "He doesn't speak English he speaks Spanish. He can speak in Spanish if you want"

Being tennis umpire myself, I really have sooo much respect for the chair umpires. You guys, really don't have a clue. on how many things, they have to concantrate on and they never get the credit for their job.
It's such a difficult job, you really couldn't tell, until you would have to do it!

Mariana Alves is really cool, but she was so unfortunate in that Serena-Jennifer match. I heard she cried like a Niagara-fall, when they showed her the mistake she made.

Nowadays I think she, Lynn Welsh and Louise Engzell are the best umpires.

4 wrong calls in one set? That is disgusting. What is the job of the chair umpire if not to overule wrong calls? I have no idea why she is still an umpire. There is no way a player will be able to play to the best of their ability if they know play isn't fair. You can say one or two are mistakes by the umpire but 4? Mostly at crucial points?

Allison Lang is usually pretty decent. When she's not overruling, she's good at keeping the players in check.

Lynn Welsh is awesome...but she made the stupidest overrule in Miami in Sharapova vs. Li in 2006...the ball Sharapova had hit was so far inside the line, the line wasn't in the picture, and Sharapova challenged...her one correct challenge in the tournament.

Kader Nouni is AMAZING...love his voice.

Better mistakingly calling the ball in, going along with the linesman and Kim who was very surprised that it "was out", than mistakingly calling the ball out and making it a break for Justine in the then to be one game before the last game.

That is correct. I am not saying females cant be good umpires, it is just that the WTA tour hasnt recruited the Thatchers and Hillaries of tennis umpiring, they have recruited softies who are afraid to speak up. Having said that, you dont necessarily have to be butch or macho to make a good umpire as Mohammed is living proof of.

When Kohlschreiber was playing in Miami, Graf and Mohammed were watching Kohlschreiber trashtalking the female umpire throughout the match. Mohammed shook his head and said "gee, it is about time that she puts a lid on this guy." She said nothing.

In Melbourne, I was watching Serra - Karanusic on a small side court. During the 5th set, two drunk aussies were harrassing Serra after every single point and Serra was visibly disturbed. What did the female umpire do? Nothing. (It was either Alves or Eva A, cant tell them apart.)

In Wimbledon on Monday, Azarenka didnt got a single warning throughout the entire match although her behaviour was outrageous. Would not have happened with a male umpire.

I guess Kader Nouni is the little umpire with the really deep voice - makes you do a double take the first time you hear it.
I took a photo once of a glum looking lineswoman "modelling" Wimbledon attire quite attractively once. I think her names is Gabriella and I've seen her around the French Open and Eastbourne as well. I think she should eat more, unless she's really a model too.

Eva Asderaki :hearts: Mariana Alves :devil: Lynn Welch :worship:
I used to like Nouni until I realized he's a bitch.

Umpires are pretty much irrelevant in tennis yet most still find ways to fuck up.

As for favourite, there can be only one.

Mariana Alves - your fave could never.

Eva, of course :inlove:

Mo and Louise are a distant 2nd :lol: And I enjoy Mariana for her comedic value. :lol:


ALMOST FORGOT! And well, Lynn's a fox. :lol:

Lynn Welch...which I told her in Amelia Island and she laughed and said thanks. :lol:

Eva obviously.

Carolyn Kramer is my least favorite. She was utterly abysmal during the 2010 AO match between Ivanovic and Dulko.

Eva Asderaki. I do not mind Kader Nouni at times as well with his voice.

On the mens side, probably Lahyani and Lars Graff.

Welch and Asderaki are my faves.

Who ISN'T my fave, you ask?
Why, her, of course:

I definitively hate Nouni after Isner/Nalbandian match :mad: :mad: :mad: The worst umpiring I've ever seen! Hopefully he gets suspended if possible

btw: Why was the right thread closed? :confused: :confused:

Mohammed Lahyani or how it´s written:p He is so enjoying his matches that it´s often funny to watch him.

It was Kader but with the dodgy decisions and that dodgy face fur he's got going on its now a toss up between Mo and that American guy who used to be a marine Steve something (forgot his last name) Ullrich?

You talk about Lynn right? ;)

Mine is Eva of course :D Also like Mo, Louise, Marianna (:o) and Lynn. Though Lynn has retired now :tears: I like Kadar because of the voice and the cool beard he's sporting, but I don't rate him as a great umpire.

nouni has cemented his reputation as the most over-rated umpire in the game after last night's debacle. He literally robbed Nalbandian of a legit challenge at the most crucial point of the match. This isn't the first time he's done this either, but everyone loves his voice so much that he gets away with a lot of bad calls. Not to mention he's so unprofessional flirting with certain players (Caro).

I love Lang's voice, but Eva Asderaki is the sex :hearts:
