Being a linejudge is no joke. You have to concentrate 101% on watching the line and not be distracted by the excitement and noise in the stadium and especially the goings-on in your own court. You can't choose the event you want to judge and you may miss your favourite stars when they are playing on the other courts. You may even be seated in a less-than-ideal place together with other officials and you are not allowed to move away from your allotted location to have a better view. You can't even ask to go for a "toilet break" when judging! Sorry if you have to pee in your pants. A tiny distraction just to see your star player in action may result in a bad call from you and you may be booed by discerning fans. Luckily they check everybody with bags at the entrance and disallow dangerous items and even water bottles to be brought in, otherwise such bottles may be thrown at you! Another bad call may result in your being asked to be replaced! :crying: :crying: Where are you going to hide your face in such an open place for all to see? Do you still want to be a linejudge just to get a free admission? As a senior citizen, I pay only $18 plus $1 SISTIC fee to enjoy the entire tournament for several days. Of course you need to grow to my age to enjoy such privileges. Neither is it easy to be a linejudge for you need to attend lessons and practicals on judging and be able to pass the final exam! Your choice now. Do you still prefer to pay while the early bird discount is still available for all categories of tickets?
