Tennis Question

Is there some sort of unwritten rule that Pascal Maria has to be the chair umpire at really big matches?  Just saying.

I’m still formulating my thoughts about the final.  I’ll post that in the following days.

    I think there actually is. 😉 There’s a distinct heirarchy for the umps the best of the best ref the quarters & semis and the very best do the finals. I don’t know how they track/score them though.

  2. That’s fascinating. I’ll have to go back and find the part in Strokes of Genius that talks about umpires, see what he says about how they’re selected. So weird, because I remember him saying umpires don’t want any recognition, and yet I recognize Pascal Maria.
