Sirus(spelling?) is the instant replay system they have been showing on TV at Munich. Now if they have it, why doesn't the WTA use it? When Davenport played Clijsters the umpire(Anne Lasseur Ulrich) overruled a line call. Sirus showed it was clearly in. Sirus is MUCH clearer than the Mac-cam. It could even help audiences by keeping them on the edge of their seats waiting for close calls. Imagine the drama. So if they have this great new gizmo, why oh why don't thet USE THE BLOODY THING! <img src="frown.gif" border="0">

Good idea. That ball was clearly on the line. The replay showed the umpires overule was a bad call. For once the linesperson was correct and the umpire was WRONG.

According to Eurosport commantators Jo Durie and Simon Reed they said that that is just someone showing what they thought happened not what actually happened!
