Washington: Rules for the instant replay challenge system in tennis will make its Grand Slam debut at the US Open which begins on August 28. The system uses the 'Hawk-Eye' technology. The system includes the following features:
  • Each player gets two challenges per set to review line calls


  • A graphic rendering of the shot in question is played on the on-court video screen that the players, officials and fans can see. The ball's landing spot is shown

    If the replay shows the original call was wrong, the player keeps that challenge. If the original call was right, the player loses that challenge

    Each player will get an extra challenge if a set goes to a tiebreaker

    Players cannot carry over challenges from one set to the next.
At the US Open, the system will be used for matches at Arthur Ashe and Louis Armstrong stadiums. (AP)
