Hawk-Eye Innovations issued an official statement in relation to the controversial review which it delivered yesterday in the semifinals of the Daihatsu Indonesia Masters during the match between Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo and Ong Yew Sin/Teo Ee Yi yesterday.

The statement reads, “Hawk-Eye acknowledges that the incorrect decision was made, and apologise for this, especially to Mr. Gideon, Mr. Sukamuljo, Mr. Ong and Mr. Teo, as well as the BWF, for the resulting impact of the error on the match. Trust in officiating processes is critical, and something that we treat incredibly seriously for all Hawk-Eye technologies.

“We are proud of our longstanding relationship with BWF and fully understand the importance of trust and integrity in technology used for officiating. Whilst incidents such as this are incredibly rare, we take every issue incredibly seriously and will be undertaking a full review to ensure that this cannot happen again.”
