Putting aside the debate of how reliable the animation is, I've been enjoying the challenge system at the Australian Open. But here's what I want to see. I want a player to serve a ball that gets crushed for a return winner, with a linesperson calling the serve "OUT!" and both players thinking that the serve was in. In this case, the server would be unlikely to challenge, as they would much rather take their second serve than be down a point. So the returner would challenge, for once hoping that a linesperson was wrong about a call in which the ball was called out on their side. Ya follow?
