Many barbaric calls have been made by officials, umpires or referees in sports history and there are way too many who would deserve the cake. According to some the NBA has the worst officiating due to the nature of the sport. The NFL, NHL and MLB don't fall behind too much. In Tennis, before the implementation of the Hawk-Eye technology, the quality of officiating was subpar. John McEnroe often demanded umpires controlling his matches be removed, and he was mostly right. “There should be no umpires as well. That would maybe be a major innovation as well,” McEnroe said when asked what changes he’d like to introduce.

Notes:
- Serena Williams vs Jennifer Capriati, US Open 2004 quarterfinal:  Three line calls went against Williams in the final set, and Auto-Ref system was being tested during the match. Though the calls were not reversed, there was one overrule of a clearly correct call and the chair umpire Mariana Alves, that the TV replay showed to be good. She was removed from consideration for further matches at that year's US Open. These errors prompted talks about line calling assistance especially as the Auto-Ref system was being tested by the US Open at that time and was shown to be very accurate. Officials from the United States Tennis Association apologized to Williams for the errors by the chair umpire Mariana Alves during the final set.

- Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal, Miami 2005 Final: Nadal should've had 0-40 on Federer's serve, instead he went on to lose the game and eventually the match which was the second career head-to-head meeting between the great rivals. Nadal has played 5 Miami finals and is yet to win the title.

- Jerzy Janowicz vs Denis Shapovalov, 2017 Guadalajara challenger semifinal: Janowicz recieved three code violations in 2 minutes. He lost the match after having a match point at 5-4 in the third set.

- Olivier Rochus vs Igor Sijsling, Hertogenbosch 2012 second round: Atrocious decision by the chair umpire to replay the point because the linesman gave an "unsighted" signal. Sijsling lost the point but broke two points later with a forehand winner.

- Robin Söderling vs Fernando González, Roland Garros 2009 semifinal: González wiped the mark in a classy manner in the important point of the fourth set. 2009 was the year which saw one of the biggest upsets in tennis history at the Roland Garros. Söderling won the semifinal match vs González in five sets but lost in the final to Roger Federer.

- Andre Agassi vs Tommy Haas, Wimbledon 1998 second round: A forehand by Haas was ruled good, even though replays showed it was clearly out. "It was nearly six inches " Agassi protested. "It was out both ways. It was wide and it was long". "In 12 years, i've never seen it miss that much, " Agassi said to chair umpire Frame. The call gave Haas a 6-3 lead in a third set tiebreaker.

Umpires should be disqualified. that umpire is the WORST.
walentkane69
Racist in USA against Serena.
Augusto B. Tremarin
Ali Nili is a terrible umpire. Ridiculous.
Zorroborro
2:26 holy shit I really hope this incident was the last and last time he ever worked as tennis referee :OOOOOO
An Artist Named Matthew
Dustin Brown did that at Halle too, a while back... what an asshole.
vosharap
Francesca's point should've gone to her!

Ryan Harrison was acting pretty petty to me.

The Umpire for Brown-Coric was so bad, he even admitted that the first out call was incorrect later on in the match.

The Capriati-Serena match was the biggest influence for having challenging calls now
Jeffrey Chou
Zhu vs Schivone: very cheap lie
Arsen August
I wanna punch those cheater-umpire and line judges in the face so fu**ibg badly.

Igor had 9 dollars in his hand.
If Igor gave 3 dollars for every pixel in this video, how many dollars would Igor have Remaining

9:10 interesting to see that at the time, hawk eye wasn't really precise. It appears even more in with the hawk eye than it actually looks on the replay. Either case, IN.
Horatio Huskisson
What's the point in the supervisors? They seems to just agree with the Umpires no matter what
Pranav Mohanty
Janowicz's indignation at 03:34 reminded me of "How many times?" 😂
brockjohnson100
Serena may have her moments but she knows when in is in
Beast Mode
Lol I used to live in Irving, Dallas... Didn't know I had such braindead umpires as neighbors...
Akupara
Zhu- Chinese - Cheaters
Kunals Nagarkotis
capriati Vs Serena Williams was the racist match
Fabresque
I really don't understand why we can't have Hawkeye on clay, there have been numerous arguments about which one is actually the mark. Djokovic even got into an argument because he thought the umpire was STANDING on the mark. Why not just put in hawk eye and get rid of the whole mark checking, it'd make the game flow much quicker and a computer analysis is much more detailed than a human eye looking at a bunch of marks in the dirt
Donnell Blakey
if i were serena i wouldve slit everyones throats
Michael Milano
Harrison is the star in this one
Gerty
Schiavone was the best. The Chinese cunt lied and she called her on it. Fucking Chinese...
Johnathan Hollis
@6:40 how the ump acknowledged his mistake and proceeded like nothing happened. #EPICwin 😂😂😂😂💀💀💀
Joshua Agassi
wow. its my first time to give my heart to Williams. she was totally robbed three times of her scores. some tennis...
CRYSTAL DOG92
6:43 The umpire says the other one was probably out, then why didn't he call it out
Alfredo Durán
The last umpire, Mrs. Alves, is a thief along with the line judges, they make lose some tennis players, in this case to Serena Williams. The funniest thing is that the Crackiati bitch never said anything, even though the ball was always inside, asshole Crackiati! 😂👎🏻
Dyllan Liu
Why is the first guy complaining?? He, himself, sliced the ball out and umpire asked him to redo the point. He should have lost the point but he got a redo.
Kasa Pa
Wtf is the Irving tournament anyway and who watches it? :D
Pierrot veyron
Nan mais lautre de France 2 qui nous dis quelle est bonne car ils sont bien places,pauvre merde
Daniel Navarro
Por este ultimo partido en este video entre Williams y Capriati, se decidio poner el ojo de halcon, esta jueza de Portugal Mariana Alves cometio muchos errores, fue retirada de ese US OPEN 2004, al igual que otros 3 arbitros mas, y por este robo a Serena Williams se decidio poner definitivamente el ojo de halcon, tuvo mucha repercusion este partido de Williams vs Capriati.
Angela Hunter
I watched the Serena match she was cheated all through the match
Roger Dunbar
This video makes me cringe so hard....
ian hodson
APPALLING THAT UMPIRE WAS A C***
Steven Roy

Jelani English
why can't people just be honest? if my shot was wide or long, i'd call it on myself. one point is not worth ruining a whole match over
h8pe - hxx
Harrison is love 💖
G Low
fucking irving mate, worst tournament ever.
Mel1lvar
4:52 'I don't think it was a foot wide'

Hear they way he said that? It sounded as if he thought it was wide, dirty umpire.
a aa
Officials need to slowly ousted from sports, at least from making these sorts of decisions; their mistakes ruin games for all parties. It's a joke it has taken so long for goal-line cameras in football.
Tio Stevens
WOW that dustin serve tho dwl. where was the line judge. Then the umpire goes "the other one was probably out" ? seriously
Jesus Navas
the umpire for irving tournament deserves to die aswell with the other tennis player. disgusting. should never be able play live let alone play tennis.
bencreezay
Umpire against Janowics should be fired, so unprofessional the whole time and taking a personal disliking to a player, quite rightly like janowics id be so angry
Danny Vu
i feel bad for Serena and Borna
Joseph C
Oh my god this is horrendous so many horrible calls! "Borna, this one was in, the other one was [pause] probably out." LOL OMG.
Clara Rose

Dharmaboy
Wow some of these calls....
sk8ingcoach1
I love watching these, cause now i know which players to hate because they are cheaters. Brown, Zhu, both cheaters
Sergio Caez

Romeo Pavesi

Zyanic

Joseph Motta
