Players to have more challenges at 2008 Australian Open

Rod Laver Arena

The Australian Open director Craig Tiley announced that the tournament will adopt a three-plus-one challenge system for Hawk-Eye, which means that players will get three incorrect challenges per set and a fourth challenge if it goes into a tiebreaker (a change from this year’s two-plus-one system). In this way it will be highly unlikely that players run out of challenges.

Additionally, the Hawk-Eye technology will be used in Vodafone Arena too, and not only in the Rod Laver Arena as it was the case before.

The 2008 Australian Open will take place January 14-27.
