No, I am sorry. I am with Nooni on this one.
Eh, I don't think it is fair to say that one call cost Nalbandian the match but it was a weird situation. Nalbandian heard that it was called out and Isner raised his finger to challenge, it probably would have made sense for Nouni to give him a little more time than usual to understand what was happening, especially since Nouni's overrule turned out to be wrong. It seems a little wrong for him to overrule, be wrong about it and not give the player a chance to challenge. Ultimately it is Nalbandian's fault that he was not able to keep focused and win the match but on that one point he was clearly wronged.

It would help a great deal if there was better consistency. Sometimes players need to challenge immediately and other times they are allowed to take longer than they should. There should be a standard time limit that is strictly enforced.

Of course I have had a burning hatred of John Isner dating back to the 2007 US Open when he took a set off of Federer so I may be biased.
