The neighboring country couple was looking for luck when the service they did was deemed not to cross the front line.

After that, the referee granted their request to review the ball. Unexpectedly, the Hawkeye technology used even decided the service was on the line. Even though it is very clear from the replay on the glass layer that the ball is far from the line.
