Anne Laserre made a bad call in the Lindsay-Kim match at a crucial moment, but she's a good umpire, this was the first big mistake she made in ages I think.

Tha bad call, Per, could have cost Lindsay the #1 ranking. I know I shouldn't be thinking like this, I know it's not Anne Laserre's fault at all - everyone makes mistakes- but if she hadn't made that call, Lindsay would have won the third set 6-4, there would have been no tie-break, Lindsay wouldn't have gotten injured...<br />But then, since it's an old injury, she might have hurt herself in the final instead.

I guess I just feel bad that the last three #1 players have been unable to defend their #1 ranking due to injuries or illness <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> The #1 ranking almost looks jinxed.

I know Tine, I saw the match. But it's a small mistake and Lindsay won. It's not Anne's fault that Lindsay got injured.

Hey Tine I never thought of it like that if she hadn't called that ball out (which she shouldn't have at such a crucial moment) then maybe Lindsay wouldn't be injured and then Lindsay wouldn't have to go through all this shit about pulling out and feeling guilty about the whole tournament. WOW I am so mad now!!!! but I have never seen Anne make a mistake before in a match, nevertheless it will take time to heal my frustration. <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" /> <img src="graemlins/firey.gif" border="0" alt="[Fiery]" />

A man can be chair umpire for a women´s match, but I have never seen that a woman was chair umpire for a men´s match!<br />Isn´t it strange? Is there any rule for it?<br />Tell me please <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I can´t believe no one said LAURA CECCARELLI. She is my favourite. <img src="graemlins/hearts.gif" border="0" alt="[Hearts]" /> I even got an autograph from her at the Sanex Championships! LOL! She was so cute, she said when I asked her for the signature: "Ohh, I am not so good at this..." LOL! <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> <br />Laura is the best.

P.S. I like her especially when she says DEUCE! The s from Deuce is always pronounced long....LOL!!! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I guess she thought he had made some bad calls or something. As I recall, Tarango was either defaulted or quit the match himself. He ended up being suspended for a few tournaments.
