Can you be a tennis line judge?

Huh, I was hoping this would be one of those things where they actually show you the line judge's perspective. This view isn't anything like what the line judges see.

It's pretty obvious that you can't really tell anything from that video angle and size (and they don't even let you fullscreen the youtube video...) I also got 5/8.

6/8.

But the only thing I got from those clips was a reminder of how much I disliked/dislike Andy Murray (the tennis player. I'm sure he's a swell guy).

I wasn’t aware that W line judges made their calls by watching a YouTube video filmed from an overhead angle. I think W should consider letting line judges make the calls from what they see from their on-court positions. Or alternatively don’t make them stand on the court. You can just position them in seats in a well lighted, A/C room. There is no need to have them come on to court with all the attendant downsides: among others, getting the stink eye from aggrieved players, risk of being hit by a ball, public embarrassment from overrules and ruining the backgrounds of photographs.

Who would want that job? Stand outside in the heat/cold/rain and have a bunch of overgrowth children threaten you.

Very unrealistic. It only shows a couple feet of the ball's path, and catches you by surprise. Waste of time.
