    Default Bye bye service fault discussions?

    Supposedly its use is for monitoring the service (patterns).

    I know, even if this works you would only see this equipment at the big tournaments and only on 1 oder 2 courts but still I think it is a good step. Of course the service judge still needs to make the calls and the technology is only to prove him right or wrong.

    Idk how I feel about this, as it takes the human aspect out of service judging. It's also the big debate in whether baseball umpires should be replaced by a machine that calls balls and strikes and allowing coaches to challenge whether a base runner is safe or out.

    Obviously the number auf challenges has to be limited (1 per game or so) or they only use this system if a player gets faulted multiple times. But this raises the question, is it really worth the money? At least it sounds expensive...

    Just watching Mateusiak play XD @ German open and he has been Faulted on serve 3 times in one game due to his serve being crazy high or shaft not pointing down. He continues to serve completely borderline (imo illegal) and is complaining every time he gets faulted. If this system gets implemented i think we will see waaayy more service faults being called by the computer. Instead of all this technology i have an idea, how about they just stop trying to cheat and serve from a bit lower

    I wish they'd invested in line-call technology first!

    re line calls, there's already a thread discussing about it a few months ago

    apparently, bwf is trying out and will likely use high speed cams at the lines

    what remains to be seen is how the instant video replay will be implemented to assist the linesmen, umpire and whether a challenge system is used, like in tennis

    They tested the line call technology in Malaysia Open iirc. Somenone posted here in this forum that it worked quite well.
