Hawkeye Line Dispute, In Our Out? [video]
 
Here is the situation:

GWB to 2nd serve, Michael returns down the line:

BALL IN? (He says its on the INSIDE of the singles line)

OR

BALL OUT? (Ken says its on the OUTSIDE of the singles line (alley)

(Watch the slow-mo's as well)

Post a comment regarding your position.

This is all for fun.

I say it was in, but not inside of the sideline. It seemed to either catch the outside of the line or was right on the line.

Looks like it was in but hard to tell from the angle. Either way I can tell by servers reaction he wasn't sure if it was out but called it out regardless, not what the rules say to do, lol.

Watch the video again, the server (me) does not hesitate to call it out.

Regardless from whether it was in or out, play was immediately stopped because we both started saying "CAMERA IS RECORDING! WE HAVE HAWKEYE!" and start laughing. All in fun.

No prob, my first instinct was that there was a hesitation but maybe I was biased by the slo-mo :twisted:. What did your opponent think after checking the tape?

Gee Willikers Batman! 05-15-2009 06:27 PM

He was like

"ITS IN ITS IN ITS IN!!!!!!" ahaha

ronalditop 05-15-2009 06:29 PM

To me it was IN without a doubt.

acehole 05-15-2009 06:33 PM

For one, this was a recorded match for fun, and second, we had a good laugh about this while watching the video. In the full video unedited, you can hear us saying "HAWKEYE!!!!!!!!!!!" It's all in good fun, so it doesn't really matter if it was in or not, we were just having fun.

It fell right on the line.

whoopinstick 05-15-2009 07:56 PM

99% out 100% in.....just another stupid saying

BobFL 05-15-2009 08:01 PM

nyc 05-15-2009 08:09 PM

I believe that people here are being deceived by this camera angle. The angle presented makes this ball look IN. However, from years of experience, I can tell that this is not as clear cut as it appears at all. The ball might have clipped the line but I seriously doubt that it squarely hit the line a some posters seem to think. In fact, I'll go further than that -- the ball did NOT squarely hit the line. The OUT call is totally justified but I can see a case for calling it either way.

Nanshiki 05-15-2009 08:33 PM

Based on the video alone, calling it out is totally unjustified.

When in doubt, it's in. Period.

imalil2gangsta4u 05-15-2009 09:26 PM

Way too close to call, and from this angle most things will appear to be in. I would have just said in and moved on.
