Women's Final

Final Match - USA Wu vs Takahashi

At beginning of match, watch Takahashi, she takes her towel to table, then receives her paddle from umpire, she then proceeds to an area where her teammates are located. She then has her arm below the elbow over the barriers, below the barriers for a few seconds. Then her teammates retrieve an unknown ball. She might have switched paddles when her arm was below the barrier. It happened at -27:00 on the recent video. There was no reason to get a ball there, appeared to be a decoy. Takahashi won the match.

Being the final, the bat could have high chance of being tested for juice after the match. Let's see how it falls out.

If she managed to switch the bat to a really "LIVELY" one, the umpires messed up, they are in charge of supervising and controlling the players once they enter the court.

One can also argue that a professional umpire ought to be paid a professional amount for a professional job... I bet 99 bottle a beerz on the wall the umpire(s) at that court were not even paid peanuts.

Switcharoo switcharoo is the name of the game, maybe unintentional.
