VAR debuts in tennis!!!

VAR (video assistant referee) technology was used for the first time in a tennis match.

Specifically, in the match between Casper Ruud and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina for the Next Gen ATP Finals tournament, the referee used VAR to check if the ball touched the electronic board on the roof of the pitch. After the check, the point was given to the Spaniard as the replay showed the ball touching the board of the Allianz Cloud in Milan, where the tournament is being held.
