superset tennis on CBS

Was boring... but it was nice the way they had the video monitors courtside
so that the players could challenge the calls and have the call
confirmed/overturned by 'hawkeye'. If the players agree that the technology
works, that should be instituted everywhere.

Allowing it for player challenge really broke up the rhythm and pace
of the final set, though, notice.

It would probably be better to set it up for the chair (with an "out"
idiot light), and whenever he or she uses it to overrule, dump it to
The Big Screens.

Yes, but in a close match with close calls that is going to happen anyway,
as each player will argue with the umpire on close calls, with or without
hawkeye. At least with it the calls are correct, and both players have peace
of mind.
