Hello, Mr. Wertheim,

With the growing use of digital line calling, do you suppose chair umpires nonetheless want to be sat upon a laddered perch? I perceive they want a heightened vantage level to oversee all traces and corners of the courtroom, however when courts are linespeople-free and calls are automated, is there nonetheless a motive the ump wants to climb to her seat? Also, umps actually have to “speak down” to the gamers from their perch, which can subconsciously agitate some gamers throughout disagreements. If the chair ump have been courtroom degree, do you suppose Pliskova or Zverev, to title a pair of current violators, would’ve smashed their racquets on the ump’s toes? If eye-to-eye with the grounded ump, do you reckon pugnacious gamers, like Shapovalov or Kyrgios, would be roughly inclined to berate, curse, belittle, and so forth.?
