Love 'em or hate 'em, they are there for the better of the sport. Which female chair umpires do you have a soft spot for? (See also, corresponding favourite male chair umpire thread.)

But Kim was right, there are millions (or a bit less ;) ) of players who take their string savers during points. Look at Henman, or even Hingis has done it, It had nothing to do with time violation!

Lasairre-Ulrich is poor.

I am going with Fran, although Jane is a a close second.

I voted for Jane Harvey. She seems to be the most professional umpire for me, even though she is often very cold.

Lasairre-Ulrich is so incompetent and a sissy, too.

Jane - I'm always impressed by her, and I didn't see the Kim/Jen semi so I still like her :)

Leane White by far.

This women is so cool. She's really funny, has a great personality and cracks jokes all the time.

I laugh when I hear hear in the chair, her voice is so not like that in real life. She puts on this really sweet, courteous faminine voice when really she's quite butch and has a deeper voice!

She's also Aussie and lives 5 mins from me so I have to give her my vote!
