    Yeah I remember that match. It definitely seemed like some of the hawkeye stuff was ridiculous... Glad there doesn't seem to be any issues anymore.

    This is because Hawkeye's average and range of error is high enough for it to be absolutely ridiculously bad. It is nowhere near accurate as other methods, and is more expensive to implement than other things like high speed camera.

    Does anybody remember when Federer challenged against himself?

    I am pretty sure it was at the AO, and he challenged a call that was in his favor and they reviewed it and it ended up going against him. lol

    As head of the ATP council, Fed should fight for EagleEye, a system in which you can challenge HawkEye! You get one EagleEye challenge a set. :)
