Coco Gauff voices frustration over lack of video technology in tennis decisions

Coco Gauff came across someone stronger than her this Thursday. The American was eliminated in 2 sets by Iga Swiatek. If she recognized the superiority of the Pole, she returned to a very frustrating event. In the third game of the second set, when she was leading 2-1, a linesman first announced the ball “out” before the chair umpire reversed the decision and awarded the point to number 1 worldwide. Coco Gauff felt, for her part, that the announcement had affected her shot and therefore that the point had to be replayed.

A lively discussion followed this episode. After the meeting, Coco Gauff returned to the incident by expressing a little rant: “I think that tennis is the only sport where not only do we not have video, but also where only one person takes care of the decision, regretted the world number 3. In other sports, there are several referees who participate in decision-making. I know the US Open took a step forward last year, we used it in doubles. It’s almost ridiculous not to have it at the point where we are. I’m not talking about it because it happened to me, but because I think every sport has it. There are so many decisions and it sucks as a player when you come home and find out on the internet that you were totally right,” she explained at a press conference.
