Video review used for double bounce for the first time in Grand Slam

In a significant development for the US Open, the tournament will now utilize video review technology to determine instances of a double bounce. This marks the first time that double bounce cases in a Grand Slam event will be subject to video review. The implementation of this technology will be limited to five out of the total 17 courts at the US Open, starting from 28 August.
The decision to introduce video review for double bounce cases is aimed at ensuring fair play and accuracy in the tournament. Previously, these situations relied solely on the judgment of the chair umpire, which could sometimes lead to human error. With the introduction of video review, the tournament organizers aim to enhance the officiating process and minimize potential controversies.
The US Open tournament referee expressed optimism about the use of this technology, acknowledging that being a chair umpire can be challenging, especially when it comes to making split-second decisions. The implementation of video review for double bounce cases is expected to alleviate some of the pressure on umpires and provide them with an additional tool to make more accurate calls. While the exact details of how the video review process will work for double bounce cases have not been provided, it is anticipated that the technology will involve the use of cameras and replay systems to analyze the footage and determine whether a double bounce occurred.
