In this regard, the "one umpire" system is really flawed because one person, even in the chair, can't see all the balls well enough to overrule anything but a clear error, leaving anything close to the whim of the player.

It makes for constant negative byplay on court which gets annoying to watch.
That was my main point, it got really annoying to watch. I dont see much changing, to add extra officials would cost money at a time when schools are looking to cut back on sports like tennis so I fear an escalation.
