Looks out almost by anyone initially and I don't blame Du for not believing it. After a few replays you could see that it actually touches the outside edge of the line, which is "IN". This is even better than smashing "on the line" because it smashes on the outside edge of the line and is still IN.
In saying that, DO has the 'best' line judges as opposed to 'worst'.
. 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 Attachment 131865
So, chlsy8, will you change the title and give credit to the line judge or create new tret for that? You can't compare with tennis where the budget is 10-20 times what we have here. Fyi: the linejudge here are voluntary bases. So far i don't find any terrible calls. It is argueable in some cases but surely not terrible.For the LCW final point, it is in the near line to umpire. It is easy for umpire to see and overule if it is out. Imho it is just the nature of all the Chinese players to always try to influence the line judge because it is part of their training program since they are in the their youth.Bwf would not give 'Premier' tittle to just any organizer/country. They have to earn the 'Premier' status. And i think Denmark is surely one of the best organizer (althought i never beeen to Denmark). They are the only organizer that do the free live streaming since 1st day. 2 thumbup for them
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 .
I had been watching the games since R16 and that thought kept recurring in my mind as well. The ligting fall-off is too sharp. It creates problems for line judges when there is insufficient contrast and brightness. The average human eye cannot really diffrentiate at speeds faster than 1/50 sec, so a fast smash will often create margin for error. If the persistence-of-vision image is itself of low quality (lumens) you won't get consistent results.
