The Madrid Masters 1000, both in ATP and WTA, se became the first brick dust event in this category to use the Foxtenn royal pit systemtransparent for tennis players and fans, which ensures a clean competition without errors.
This system is enabled to be used in the different tournaments of the circuit, as well as in the Grand Slam. In total, it has 40 high-speed cameras and laser scanners divided into the ground of the Manolo Santana court, Madrid’s main stadium. These cameras are capable of recording up to 3,000 images per second, to know if the ball hit on or off the court.
Combined with high speed laser scanners, the place where the ball has struck will be determined with greater accuracy than the actual mark of the ball on the ground. In this way, the chair judges will not go down to verify if it was in or out, and the different players will have limited challenge requests, since the intention is that technology is the one that determines the most adjusted doubts.
