    I watched about half the tourney, but the match between LXR and JS a couple of days ago took the cake for line judging. Stevie Wonder would've done a better job than whoever worked that game.

    line judging can be very difficult especially if you had 2 continuous shift, and everyone is human so they make mistakes. Give them a break

    For the last point of men's single final, they didn't give the replay. Why? Of course LCW already had the winner's pose and the referee didn't overturn the line judge - just like 2010 All England. At least 2010 all england gave the replay to show the line judge was wrong.

    When can all line judges/referees of super series have the same quality of Olympics?

    You think they have a special squad of linejudges and referees to do the Olympics?

    Don't know how many matches you've watched but the (vast) majority of close calls have turned out to be correct in the video replay this week ... and I've watched a lot of matches ...

    As far as that last point is concerned I don't think there is a camera on that line as they didn't show a replay on a close call there in another match. Looking at this one it looks exactly the same as the earlier one I meant which also seemed out to me. Doesn't mean you have to react like a typical fanboy and call the whole tournament of the worst standard of the whole year and everyone sucks!

    I have the impression that if the line judge's call was wrong they won't show the replay for obvious reasons. That of course does not mean that every time when there is no replay the line judge was wrong.

    I watched both courts at the same time . TV court with my left and Court 2 with my right eye . And I still didn't win anything for the second year in a row

    Makes you wonder if such dim lighting is beneficial to linejudging duties. Can imagine such contrast is weary for your eyes.

    Any particular QF match that stood out? Skipped a few matches from Court 2 then I remember and by default any WD match without eye candy, so still pretty much every WD match .

    haha eye candy is that important huh?

    the men's double korean pair vs denmark pair and women's single lxy vs shenk are the worst, at least 3 wrong calls per game

    thanks Phili with that angle it's easier to find out although I did replay it 5 times to find out LOL

    Haha, of all the spots they could have sat they were right on this line . Kinda reminds me of the "Test your mind" on National Geographic with jury duty. Probably all these linejudges would be doing 25-to-life by now
