Re: Interview with an umpire: Anja Vreg opens up on life in the chair

I was lucky enough to meet Anja during the ASB Classic last summer, and spent about half an hour with her while waiting for a match to finish on the court where she was umpiring next. She's a really lovely person, and it was a fascinating insight into the world of tennis officiating - especially how little they get paid in basic terms. I was really surprised to find out that many umpires feel that they have to have their own businesses so that they can have income during the off-season.
