Re: 15,000$ Sunderland, Great Britain, Mar18, Draws

Was there today.

The umpires' line calling was even more creative than usual. Mind you, I don't know what Broady's did in particular to upset her. When she went down 6-2 in the final set TB (going on to win the next three points then dump a forehand into the net when serving to level it up) she lost it completely with the ump. "I think you're actually the worst of all the English referees [sic], and that's actually saying something". Or words to that effect. Was a little bit meaner than it seems written down, I probably don't have it quite right. Got a code violation for that. Heard the umpire discussing it later, I think she was a little shaken. Must have been one of her first events, she looked like a primary schoolgirl.

Fitzpatrick got a code violation too, for racket abuse.
