That seems to be the best solution if someone is making bad line calls. And every single time I've been a line judge, the bad line calls miraculously vanish.
I've played USTA and local league tennis since 2005, hundreds of matches including local and state playoffs and I've never had a linesperson for a match. I think that my experience is not unique which is why people think it is rare to have one.
Thanks TW for the version reversion and Xenforo FTW!
