What is the difference in terms of accuracy of Hawk-Eye technology when it comes to cricket and tennis?
The tennis authorities throughout the world (except for the French Open and some clay court tournaments) have accepted the Hawk-Eye technology, completely trusting its results and awarding decisions on its basis.
