Any who, there used to be officials that would watch match play and DQ right on the spot, maybe 10 years ago. Right now I think it is 100% computer based and a roving random official would have no right or ability to DQ someone based on inspection.
I'm not so sure about that, I was under the impression that a USTA official could do something like this.
Maybe Woodrow or some one with actual knowledge will clear this up.
And even if the official was a friend of team C's captain and was there watching at his request, if the guy was indeed a sandbagger then I don't see anything sketchy about that.
