Very sad news but not suprising he would leave as his new position at FFT was an irresistible opportunity.

He has the chance to really impact longterm change in a way that he never could in umpire chairs.

Big appointment and tennis story. Will probably create big / good changes in French tennis imo.

LOL

I was pointing and laughing so badly when I saw that happen lmao Worst net player Tennis has ever seen. Embarassing tbh.

Even my grandma can run towards that ball with a shopping trolley in one hand and a racket in the other to put that ball away.

Somebody here had great 6 months and will be whining again when January comes around...
 
Agree.
Wonder why he retire now. Maybe something to do w the metoo thing?
I know some nasty umpires Ive met late night in social settings.
Never liked Pascal. Too much ego in his umpirering role.

Yep, umpires/referees in all sports should be unseen as much as possible. Some of them try to make themselves the focus of attention. Plus this guy was constantly issuing Nadal or Novak with warnings just as they were about to serve important points-there can be no doubt that was malicious.

They could take a break the same time as the players and all happily get booed together. ;)

Or they can feign injury and sprint back onto the court and climb quickly up the chair as if nothing ever happened. These things can happen especially at the Australian Open.
