Second best would be to call the ball out if it was clearly out. Fairness in competition is the goal of the code, not technicality.
I agree. For one the officials role in this was uncalled for. Two, are we to make audible calls on everything? Like when i am returning serve and my opponent hits his first serve into the net, am i supposed to shout NET! (Which gets old real quick as i have had guys do that to me)
If we are going to be REALLY TECHNICAL the call should have gone to playerB because player A made loud sound that just might have affected the other player (just ask Serena about that one.
