Blame everyone but the person who deserves it. :rolleyes:
the most frightening development out of all of this, is evolution of the fedfan vamosian, a sick defaced creation that was never meant to be in the natural world.
An abomination if you will.

What if the computer freezes or getting hacked by malicious hackers? Computer can break down and can be erratic. Human line judge is still needed.

1 Joker had to be defaulted 2 the usta is a bunch of idiotic people afraid of change We need line judges today like we need cancer. USTA fuddies (if you feel I dislike these guy u right) Lets see if they have the balls to finally admit LJes are archaic and could/should have been gone long ago. But the tradition what about the tradition of having 17 arguments a day because these people miss calls. The time is now bye bye

That is not the point. Tennis pros can't act in Anger........... you must control your emotions and show love and happiness to all at all times
Why didn't he do the boob throwing ritual after the match? The other previous rituals must have been fake ritual. He only gives love when he's winning.


Where is Pepe and Amor y Paz when he needs them? Do Amor y Paz and vegan diet actually make him angry?

I think a huge meal of ribeye steak and red wine will make him content, happy and less irritable.

And this is not 1935 a gentlemens game. This is a war to make money and get endorsements I like the real raw emotions of 2 athletes fighting like crazy to make moneyScrew the penalties for tossing rackets let them show their feelings football bball have Our players are asked to compete like hell but not show emotion?BS

Can someone name one benefit of lines people? Just get rid of them for good. Waste of space and money.
Agree, especially today with players hitting the ball so hard, that lines people and ball kids could be seriously hurt and the fact that the challenge system can make the calls faster and more accurately.

Until throwing and smashing rackets seriously hurt someone?

And if you are used to playing in their absence, then you can forget that on this occasion they are there.
Will be interesting to see if the PTP and Djoker finally does away with these useless line judges.

Maybe something good will come out from all of this and we will all be spared from ever seeing this overacting woman on the court again.

It's not a decision for the PTPA, but where linespeople are just there to be billboards the conclusion is obvious.

It's not like this is the first match Djokovic ever played with line judges. It was a bonehead move by him, and he paid the price. End of story. I think and hope they would have done the same to any other player, and I would think it appropriate if they did. Anyway, sorry to see the tournament end for him that way - I'm sure he will learn from it.

They should switch to electronic but not because of the incident today
You can get all of the calls right with Hawkeye so why have line judges in the first place

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the lines people, and I did not speak out—because I was not a lines person.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I'm fed up of the constant insufferable BS of tennis. Linespeople instead of electronics. Human players instead of robots. cement, grass, clay and rubber courts instead of motherboard courts.


Crap game you all follow.

cute but we are talking about making the games quicker and calls more accurate not the extinction of mankind.
