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
