    CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) YOU STARTED GOING TO THE NET TO CHECK, I TRUST YOUR VISION AND FEEL AND THAT MEANS IT WAS POSSIBLY AN IN SERVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) THIS UMPIRE SITS THERE , SOUNDING APATHETIC, ANNOUNCES LOUDLY , ABRUPTLY THE THE SCORES , WHICH IS TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE , PERHAPS A CONNIVING ATTEMPT TO DISTURB FLOW OF FOCUS, AND FOR THE MOST PART, DOES NOT FULLY ENGAGE, OR OVER TURN POOR CALLS……VERY FLAT UNPROFESSIONAL WAY OF COVERING MATCHES. WITH NOVAK ON THE OTHER HAND, THIS UMPIRE NEVER EVER DOES ANY OF THIS CONNIVING, POOR TACTICS…..OPPOSITE, HE BEHAVES EXTREMELY THE OTHER WAY, ALWAYS MAKING CALLS BENEFITING NOVAK…. FURTHERMORE, I NOTICED HE VERY FREQUENTLY COVERS NOVAK’S MATCHES…….I SUPPOSE IT IS A PART OF THE BS BEHIND SCENE THAT FANS OFTEN POINT OUT……BS THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COMPETITION OR PLAYER’S SKILLS. SO IT IS CLEARLY POOR BIAS ATTITUDE HE HAS AND AUGHT NOT BE ALLOWED TO COVER GS . TWO DAYS AGO RAFA HAD AN AMAZING UMPIRE…..MADE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF VIEWERS ENJOYMENT OF THE MATCH. IT IS RATHER PUZZLING THE VARIATION LEVEL OF PROFESSIONALISM AMONGST UMPIRES…….. THIS IS GS AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL POOR UMPIRING IS GOING ON. I HAVE ZERO RESPECT FOR THIS POOR UMPIRE AND HOPE PLAYERS BRING THAT UP . SO DEAR RAFA IN SHORT SIMPLY PUT: PLEASE CHALLENGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) WE LOVE YOU SWEETHEART AND CONGRATULATIONS ON TAKING THE 1ST SET SO BEAUTIFULLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) KEEP GOING SWEETHEART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : ) XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

    Quite a laboured performance from Rafa so early on in the match. He was 3-1 up with a break and moments later 3-3! Kukushkin is no push over, but Rafa needs to be slicker in his service games.
