Agreed, even the most beginner of players can 'feel' when a ball is
out, sometimes you get surprised, but more often than not you know. I
don't buy that Federer is as bad as his record suggests.

Fed and the challenges is a funny one. I don't think his judgement is as far
out as all the commentators like to yadda on about. You will see when he
genuinely thinks a ball was in and challenges....it will be verrry close.
The time when he challenges and its miles out....you can tell by his body
language that he has already accepted the out call...but is just challenging
out of frustration with himself for missing etc.
