Clay does NOT need Hawk Eye

well hawkeye proved on match point the ball was out but the umpire called the wrong mark in, luckily the right person still won. so hawkeye is not a factor at RG

imagine if tonight sakkari woulda won where in fact she lost it (but thanks to umpire blabla..), and that was a huge moment with a wrong call by umpire)
The umpire identified the wrong mark. The hawk eye is also not error free.
I remember an episode when a player asked a challenge just because, and the hawk eye retrieved an absurd call.

There are fewer Hawkeye cameras installed at RG so the Hawkeye image you see on TV is less reliable than in normal tournaments where they use Hawkeye. So they shouldn't broadcast it as reliable source because it might stir up controversy

HawkEye should be on all tournaments. I would even say that the judges on the line should go, and there should be all the way hawkeye. That will speed the game, and clean it a bit, and remove the ambiguities.
On the match Tsitsipas - Medvedev, at the second set tiebreak, on 5-2, they tick Medvedev serve as IN, even the umpire check the mark, and said its okay, and after that there was a replay, and the ball was clearly all, like 3-4cm at least.
It wasn't the right mark obviously, or the umpire was drunk.

Also what i don't get is, how on pretty much every single match on HC and grass, where there is hawkeye, there is a plenty of bad calls, yet on clay, 99% of the time somehow the judge on the lines are right.
And don't start with the mark thing, cause there is a lot factors that took a play, and that could foul the call.
Hawkeye should be a must on all surfaces.
