    Did anybody catch that? I believe it was 9-8 in the first set tiebreak for Janowicz, set point, on his serve, Somdev hits a forehand clearly wide that was called in. He just lost the first set, but just wow..

    Clearly wide? What angle did you see it at? It was close and could have been out, but on TV you can't say it was clearly wide.

    Additionally, this should be in results section.

    This was the first match without the ability to challenge I've watched in a long time. It was sort of fun to see both players get worked up a few time over iffy calls, but I think I much prefer the simplicity of the challenge system.

    I thought the ball was in so the correct call was made.

    I thought the ball was right on the line when watching the match live, but it seems the ball actually was just out:

    Poor guy, hard call for anyone to make and his reaction is ridiculous.

    Surely motivation to move yourself up the rankings and play on HE available courts?

    It's an optical illusion for us who is watching the video. We can't tell where the ball bounced as it traveled on the same path as where the side line was going, and it kind of blended with the line for a sec. When we finally see the ball, it looked like it had just bounced but actually it bounced while it was being "camouflaged" by the sideline.

    To me it looks obviously wide, to be honest.

    Not that it matters... :)

    That video doesn't convince me. I still say it's in. Unless someone put a hawkeye on that I'll believe it was in. The umpire was on the other side so it was a tough call anyway.

    Ruling might or might not have been unfair. Be that as may, Jerzy's reaction was over the top IMHO.

    Caught the outside of the line my man. The first time, I thought it was out too because of the very vertical bounce it has, but the slowmo replays show that it was actually in.

    A good reason they should have challenge cameras in place even on outside courts. If they're going to use them, it's unfair to players who aren't ranked high enough to play on the big courts not to have them on the smaller courts.

    I am not a big fan of Almagro's but hope he smokes this guy. I have seen outbursts, but this was a bit much. And to add insult to injury T.C. repeated the whole match today, and just showed highlights of the other entertaining matches.

    Agreed. Janowicz acts like a lunatic. I am also sick and tired of the hype surrounding him. He may improve, but it took him 5 sets to beat a pusher like Somdev, and he had to come ffrom 2 sets down to do it.

    Like it or not, hyper-emotional players are fun to watch. He will draw a huge audience, including me, for his next matches, for sure.

    I watched the match and was 100% sure the ball was in. I thought Jerzy was just being a little whiny boy, no idea he was contesting the call

    Really and how exactly is the Chair supposed to overrule a ball that close on the far sideline, with a line official already looking directly at it.
    As a solo chair that would not be overruled and by virtue of how far away from the chair and having a line official right there plus replay appears to show it in, was not like the ball was speeding like a laser.

    LOL. I think you are in the minority with your opinion of the call.

    The picture shows the ball just after it bounces, if you used your brain you'd be able to see that it would have bounced just out

    You forgot the question mark. Otherwise it may come off as a compelling statement.

    You should use your brain and your eyes, and be more respectful to others. As I said before in high def full screen the ball is clearly in: [​IMG]

    That's a damn good question. Which begs another one. What's the optimal direction from which to call a ball?

    To put it another way, how does hawk-eye technology see it? And why isn't it installed there yet?

    I hope Jerzy actually learns a valuable lesson about emotions and tapping into his energy from this. And by that I mean the second set downer. And how he pummeled Devvarman in the third and fourth. As Becker put it, the rest is about heart. I mean nerves. Back full circle.
