I find it useless if the umpires is blind, we have controversy in big matches

Yes, they should shout "Challenge".
Tomic's gesture was horrible - raised hand for challenge and then pretended he didn't. And umpire fell for it :eek: :eek: :eek:

I think shouting out and screaming out things could be controversial. Players could accuse others of screaming challenge when they could just be grunting.

The rules are clear. Stop play. If Dogopolev or whatever his name is hit a winner in that point, Tomic definitely would've turned around and said he challenged.

He wasn't honest. He cheated.

No one's grunt sounds like saying "CHALLENGE" :spit: I mean, not yet :unsure:

Yes, another bad decision by the umpire. However, this time player cheated too. On the other hand it would be good if players keep their cool instead of throwing the whole match.
