Was there foot fault? Let's examine the video together and decide
Hold it! Before you vote yes, watch the video and read on...
Sequence goes from 0:36 to 0:42.
0:36 - 0:38 ==> you see the shadow under her shoe far from the line
0:39 ==> her shoe covers the shadow exactly at the same spot where the shadow was before
0:40 - 0:42 ==> she lifts her heel, leaving the front of her foot still at the same spot.
I know the angle makes it appear that the foot is touching the line, but if you follow the shadow, it's clear that it isn't the case.

Obviously with this angle of video no one can make the right decision. The only thing you can see is serena adjusted her foot at the last minute(the front of her foot as well, look closely), it went a little foreward. You can´t see if it´s touching the line from this angle. A linesman should, from the angle where she was sitting... If we don't get a better video you have to go with the angle from where the linesman was sitting.

Uh, don't be ridiculous! Didn't you read the opening post? Some Serena fans are clearly able to tell from that angle that there was "clearly" no double fault. Or do you actually think the those Serena fans who have claimed so are maybe biased?
