Anybody see the mistake in the williams vs sprem match?
I understand how the umpire could of made a mistake. After her serve was called out she played on through and the crowd clapped. The umpire could of temporarily zoned out and awarded a point.
What should of happened is that venus should of questioned or one of the linesman should of said something or the tournament referee should of said something. With a match on center court at least one of them should of said something.
I don't feel sorry for venus though. She had 3 set points and couldn't convert. To me it's almost the same as someone calling a ball out when it was clearly in. If it's systematic it's a problem, but one point very very rarely decides a match.
