My friend was really upset the guy called it out, thinking he got robbed. My brother, who was next to me on the other hand, saw it in . So for the guy who lost, my friend, it might have been more upseting that we got kinda involved on it, cause my brother said from outside the court: "that was in!". Sometimes when trying to help you do more harm So if asked, I find its better to say "I wasnt looking"; only when things are really goin outta hand, with a full-throttle line thief will I get involved if a friend is getting ripped off.
Always fun to play USTA League matches as a visitor with a hostile crowd. Everyone's a line judge and questions every call. At least in doubles you can question their partner.
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
