Prime Time Zone, Sports: Some rules in cricket have been temporarily added due to the corona. Many changes are taking place in other sports as well. The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) took a key decision in this regard. It has decided to suspend the policy of line umpires in court no longer. The sector is poised to use the Hawk-Eye technology used over the past few years in all sports around the world. Hawk-Eye technology has been partially used in tennis since 2006. However, ATP has decided to make full use of this technology. With this, the line umpires will no longer be there. Only the chair umpire will oversee the entire match, says ATP.
How does it work ..?
Hawk-Eye technology is used in football and cricket. With this technology it is possible to know exactly where the ball landed. The automatic noble system in cricket was introduced some time ago. It uses Hawk-Eye technology. In the same way in tennis it is possible to know immediately where the ball has fallen through the hawk-eye. Did the ball hit by the players before fall out or fall inside? Whether the service was done properly or not is known by the line umpires.
But it is no longer necessary to have umpires through new technology. The technology has been partially used in tennis since 2006. It is only used when players request a referral. Now ATP has decided to make full use of it. The court currently consists of seven line umpires, one chair umpire and six ball kids. But now that the line umpires have been completely removed, only seven people will be allowed on the court. Only the Chair Umpire, Ball Kids.
Starting from Australia
The technology, called Hawk-Eye Live System, was fully piloted at the 2018 ATP NextGen Finals. It was then used at the Cincinnati Masters last year. Having been successful there I want to use this technology for all hard court matches. Hawk-Eye technology will be used at the Australian Open in addition to the ATP tournaments taking place in Australia. However this technology is going to be limited to hard courts only. Grass Court and Clay Courts are still experimenting with accuracy.
Using this technology on the other hand is a very costly affair. That is why cash rich will be used in tournaments. In a court of law, a tournament costs Rs. It will cost Rs 18 lakhs. Most of the tournaments in India are held at the Belwadi Tennis Stadium in Pune. To install the hack-eye system in the three courts here, Rs. It will cost 55 lakhs. But if you win in ATP Challenger here, the total amount given to the winner is Rs. Does not exceed 40 lakhs. This will limit the technology to cash-rich tournaments only.
