yes, I changed my opinion about her, she helped a few croatian umpires to get their badges. She probably had a bad day in Portoroz.

Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

I'm umpiring 3 weeks in a row as a linesman (2 futures and Zagreb Indoors). At the men's national championships friend's match lasted almost 4 hours. I umpired 7 matches in the chair and 3 matches on the line.

I umpired national Under 18 tournament final today. the match was finished in an hour. I did 1 overrule and a player agreed with me. My friend will attend umpires course this year.

I umpired National U16 championships final as the chair umpire. I had bronze and white badge as a line umpires. I overruled a guy on the service line.

Luckily his opponent was quite and won.

I will umpire at Zagreb Indoors. It's not sure Zagreb Indoors will be hell because there is a problem with a hall. Handball club has reserved hall in that time for their champions league matches

You can do both things. Sports management as a job and umpiring as a hobby.

Re: I will umpire my first professional tournament!

Yeah compared to other sports tennis is a silent type of sport so the crowd/parents misbehaving can't he hidden, whereas when i've played basketball over the years its hard to hear what the parents/crowds were saying
