they use it on every point
They had a bad system in tennis for a few years (Cyclops, I think), but they have a good one now (Hawkeye).
Oh please, you know what I'm getting at. Players are bombing the service line with 100 mph serves nearly every point. A system like this could have a lot of application in tennis. In baseball you could watch your team for a month and not see a ball down the line that is even that questionable.
They seem to be sticking to on-field incidents that involve at most one player (the fielder) and can't possibly lead to players changing their behavior in any way once they realize a replay is a possibility. In situations with multiple moving parts (safe/out), you could imagine players choosing a different strategy of what to do when they are aware that the umpire's initial play might be overturned. It's a little less predictable.
