I've been enjoying hours of this on Eurosport.

They've inttroduced some new equipment.

For decades Wimbledon with all their money have been using these umpire's chairs.

Then making ball boys/girls stand in the (occasional) hot sun holding a golf umbrella to shade the players when they sit down at the change of ends.

No longer are we the leaders in the provision of facilities, the Australians have been using these new umpires chairs and retractable canopies, instead of making kids hold umbrellas for three years now. The canopy over the umpire can be removed for night matches to give the spectators a better view.
