With the other 3 grand slams with it, should the French Open join?

Originally, I wanted the FO to join the other 3 GSs by using the HawkEye system. The only problem with the HawEye is that there are not enough challenges per sets. On the Clay, the players can challenge as many calls as they see fit, even if the ignorant crowd keeps booing them.

No, clay is the surface you can always challenge.

They should do it for TV tought. Because on a close call, even on slowmotion, we don't see anything.

I think they should if anyone watch the Serena match today. I seen a call that wa s made by the umpire that was clearly in but was called out. yes they need hawk eye even on clay.

It costs a lot of money ... unnecessary on clay IMHO.

Yes, they should have it. The current challenge system takes more time to have the umpire get out of the chair. And if you guys watched the replay of last year's final, we can see that the umpire may look at the wrong mark in their assessment.

yes, so the players can have a bit of closure when they feel that it was the wrong mark or that it touched/was out indeed.
