There is no doubt that the Roland Garros has been a tournament that we have all enjoyed. After all the Clay season finale has given us some great matches that will no doubt stand the test of time. Whether it is the 2nd round match between Iga Swiatek and Naomi Osaka or the iconic Grand Slam final between Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev.

The only debate that has caused a lot of problems is the technology of the game. Though we have seen some improvements in that side of the game, some players have had a problem with the technology and how it has performed in the tournament right now. Players like Coco Gauff who has displayed her disappointment with the technology in the tournament have said that there should be some improvement in the usage of Hawkeye technology in Tennis that will be more accurate.

Zverev's final match drama and how the technology impacted it

There was no doubt that the finals between Alexander Zverev and Carlos Alcaraz were probably one of the best finals in Roland Garros' history, but that does not mean there was no drama at all in the match. In fact, in the last and final set, we saw Zverev have a long argument with the umpire not signaling out. This was also one of the most important points in the game where Alcaraz got the point, but the ball showed it was out on Hawkeye. This was an important game and was also a crucial one for Zverev who was looking to break the service and get back into the match.

This was one of the biggest moments in the game that has caused a lot of debate as well since this did cause the German to miss out on some big points in the game. This might be a problem that has to be looked into by the ATP and the WTA. Though the technology has been improving day by day, there are still some inconsistencies the organizers should look into in this department going forward.
