Assume[/u] for now that shotspot is sufficiently precise.
Does anyone know how it would be implemented? I know Johnny Mac keeps talking about a system in which a player gets 1 challenge a set. IMO, however, I don't see why, say, rules involving challenging calls at the USO should be any different than those at Roland Garros, where players are at liberty to challenge virtually every close call, and the chair umpire comes down from his perch and points to the spot on the clay, which invariably is followed by a discussion over which mark in the clay is correct.
I would think the technology provided by shotspot would allow not only the chair and the television audience to see where the ball landed, but it could be displayed on the huge monitors on the feature courts as well, so that the players and fans in attendance can see, too. Moreover, even using RG rules, the fact that the chair umpire can watch the replay from his perch is time saving relative to the umpire coming down from his chair and inspecting the spot on the court.
So, back to my question: does anyone know how shotspot would be implemented assuming it gets the green light?
