Miami Chair Umpire Makes A Glaring Error

Argentina’s Damian Steiner has been regarded as one of tennis’ leading umpires for the last five years and as regular Supervisor at ATP Challenger events is perceived as having an excellent grasp of the rules of the game. However Andy Murray would have good cause to query that reputation after a glaring error in umpiring during the Sony Open quarterfinal against Novak Djokovic.

Steiner adjudged that Djokovic had not broken the rules and awarded him the point after the Serb clearly reached across the net with his racket and hit the ball on Murray’s side of the court.  Djokovic even admitted his guilt in the matter but still the point – a crucial one as it came close to the end of the first set – was awarded to him by Steiner.

 

Fognini Injury Could Be Major Factor In Davis Cup Tie

Italy’s hopes of reaching a first Davis Cup World Group semi-final since 1998 could be jeopardized by leading player Fabio Fognini either missing next week’s tie against Great Britain or playing in pain because of an injured leg muscle.

 

Madrid Open Is Promoting The Event Via A Charity Day

The Mutua Madrid Open is holding a Charity Day in the Caja Mágica in Madrid.
