I do however think that the USTA rule on overrules should be the same as in college tennis. You get 2 "freebies" in a match. Each overrule after the 2nd in a particular match, the player gets a code violation.
some upms need to get their eyes checked before they can 'overrule' but at the same time some kids just want to cheat ... a standing official at the net is not in a good position to see hardly any balls .. the close sidelines the seems to get overrule all the time,which is a bad call .. officials need to be up in an umpire seat and elevated to get a good vantage point .. test for yourself .... 'put a ball about a 1/8-1/4 in out and go stand by the net post at the near sidelines(forget about the far sidelines)to me those balls looks in ...
