I voted 5-7". I'm not sure why someone would want to stand way far behind the baseline to serve. However, there is an epidemic of foot faults at every local court I've ever played on, so backing up a few inches isn't a bad idea for most folks.

I stand back about 5 inches i dont think theres a max but i couldnt imagine serving too far behind it would make serving almost impossible

i'd say maybe one to two inches.
but further when there's a usta judge calling foot faults. :tape:

it depends...usually 2-4 but if i'm down in a service game and need a big first serve, i'll move back to more like 5-7 to make sure that it gets in...

Between 4-7 inches. But you stand as far back as you want to. But you cab't move though.

About an inch. And I don't foot fault.

I just had a 'discussion' with somebody I play with about foot faults. He foot faults almost every serve from the deuce side, by putting his back foot across the center line. But he doesn't care; didn't want to hear about it............. :shrug:
