What do u all think about hawk eye being introduced ? do u think it will reck a bit of the fun which contraversal calls bring to the court ? such as those of Mcnroe's ? or do u think it will make the game alot fairer ? beacuse for example in the U.S open last year there were some really really bad calls againt Murray,
so what do u think ? good ? or bad ?

I don't think it'll solve arguements, when a player thinks his ball is in, he won't let a machine tell him it wasn't. I do think it works and it could be a good thing to be brought into tennis. They won't use it for every ball, only the ones where there's a lot of doubting.

As long as they don't go over that challange 2 calls per set rule otherwise it's just gonna be a joke, tennis matches already last long enough espeically a five setter which could be 4 hours

Technology is being used a lot in cricket these days, but wrong decisions have strangely increased.

Hewitt got lucky with a vital point in the final, and I think Andy could have won it earlier if it wasnt for bad calling. This should make things fairer, and we always hate when controversy overshadows a sporting event

dontknow Don't like it!!
I think quite a nice part of tennis is that the players get fierd up and annoyed with the umpires at critical points. I mean in the past it may have been unfair on some players at extreme moments when they needed the point.. and im not excluding the fact that the umpires have been wrong, more than a couple of times.. but it all evens out in a player's carrear.
It's like we've got a mechanical sort of umpire now.  dontknow I prefered the old system!!

That sounds fair enough yeah, i love it when someone you liked got fired up in a positive way and started hitting massive shots was great to see that might not happen much now

Because of the cost, instant replay will be used only on the stadium court in Miami and and on the two show courts at the US Open.


Pretty expensive then... I think it will be a long time before it is everywhere... there'll still be plenty of arguments yet. Wink

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

thats good that it is being implemented so little. i dont really like the idea either. but at least players will be careful and only do it when they are absolutely sure.
