Can an umpire overrule a player that called against themselves?


1 Answer 1


Caveat: When you say "called against themselves", I assume you mean the player advocates a decision that would result in putting himself at a disadvantage.

Technically, the umpire could overrule it...but in practice he never does because the player is usually doing it in the spirit of good sportsmanship. E.g., opponent hits a shot that gets called out but player says it was really in, so the umpire will give the opponent the point.
