The electronic review system was first introduced in 2006 at the Miami Open. Since then, the technology has become inevitable prospect in majority of the tournaments in the ATP Tour. Other surfaces, apart from clay have also inducted the technology including Wimbledon Championships.

This year at the Mutua Madrid Open, the electronic review system will be in action for the first time at the clay courts. Players competing at the three courts Manolo Santana Stadium, Arantxa Sánchez-Vicario Stadium and Stadium 3, will be able to review the line calls in both singles and doubles matches. The use of the technology on clay, developed by FOXTENN, was officially approved by the ATP in November 2019 and is being trialled at select tournaments by both the ATP and WTA.

“We’re very proud to have the opportunity to use Electronic Line Calling at the Mutua Madrid Open 2020. It has always been a hallmark of our tournament to innovate and lead the way, therefore the use of this technology reaffirms that spirit,” said Tournament Director Feliciano Lopez.

“In addition, there is no doubt that it will provide significant extra help to the players. I am so happy about this huge development. It was something we needed on clay, and we’re very happy to have it at the Caja Magica. I would like to reiterate Madrid’s commitment to always being at the cutting edge of technology.”
