Extra cool points for Sergiy Stakhovsky, the Ukrainian tennis player who on Monday found an inventive and high-tech new way to argue a call — he pulled out his iPhone to snap a pic of a disputed ball mark in his first-round match against Richard Gasquet:

 

 

He later displayed the evidence on his Twitter feed, though we're not sure this is going to do him any good:

 

Stakhovsky lost the match and had a lot to say afterward. He plans to show the photo to tournament supervisors. ''I'm now expecting a fine, actually, so I'm going to go and fight,'' Stakhovsky said. Good luck with that, Sergiy.

So what do you think? Does he have an argument? Can you even tell what's going on in that photo?

Nevertheless, a great effort from Stakhovsky and an absolute clinic in staying relevant when you can only manage to win eight games in three sets.

For those keeping track, Serbia's Viktor Troicki is still winning the race for best tirade of the season.
