I can't recall any. In fact, there have been times where I could visibly see feet crossing the service line, without any call. Is the AO always this lax with foot faults?

Unless you have served as a linesperson at the tournament, or have had exclusive, unlimited access to a camera angled directly level with the service line, you cannot say for sure whether a foot crossed the line or not.

But anyway - I recall atleast a few. I remember Wickmayer got called for one in her match against Henin. I remember there being others, but I can't recall which matches.

Really? If a foot is a foot inside the court, you can't tell that it has in fact crossed the line?

Can't recall any? Funny, there was a foot fault called in the most recent singles match played... guess you're not paying attention :tape:

As the Serena incident showed, it's impossible to tell unless you have a direct view of it. Unless it's literally about 5 inches over the line, which would never happen without it being called.

Anyway, yeah, one foot fault that I saw. on Tsonga, but that was so egregious, you could have seen it from outer space.

For you, maybe.. but most tennis fans look forward to a final between the two best players in the field.

I wonder how people can look up to an arrogant, entitled, spoiled man such as Federer. Tennis aside -- he is the most childish of champions. :rolleyes: I'm sure I don't need to list examples.

(This is also why I am forever indebted to Nadal, although not his fan -- he put a big fat asterik next to Federer's accomplishments)

Murray, I cannot say much about other than I think he looks like an unwashed hairy asshole :tape: So ... ugly lol. Shallow, I know...
.

(But believe me when I say Tsonga could hit it!)

well, I stated at the US Open even before the Serena incident that the footfault calls were crazy cause you hardly ever hear them... but they were all over the place that tournament. Anyways, those saying they have seen some foot faults that arent called not likely.... you hardly ever see the persons feet when they are serving and since you can cross the line as soon as the ball is struck it'd really be impossible to tell on tv.

None have called because that Asian lineswoman who almost ended up with a "fucking ball down her throat" wasn´t at Serena/Venus matches I guess! :haha: :haha: :haha:

There were tons of foot faults called in the Dulgheru / Wickmayer match. Others I'm not too sure about.

Oh there were a couple from the Penetta / Wickmayer one too.

The OP hasn't obviously been watching the tennis because I can remember at least quite a few off the top of my head during this years AO. Del Potro was called for at least 5 or 6 in one of his early round matches.

Of all the matches I've seen. I've only heard footfaults in the women's event, but NONE in the mens event.

No it's not. In the mens matches that I've seen, there weren't any. And in the women there were.

But are you hence deducing that there are no foot faults called in men's matches in this year's AO? Cos there obviously were...a lot of them too

Federer....please DO list examples. Why do you consider him so childish?
