Default Foot faults: how often do they really happen?

Few minutes ago Isner lost 1st game a lot due to FF in 5th set. Rare thing to happen.

But how do you think, plyers really very rarely make it or linejudges usually just don`t punish them for it?

Happens quite a bit, just not a rule often imposed. The US Open is stricter then most on the rule.

At least Isner didn't threaten to jam a racket down the line judge's throat.

Well they happen when a player steps on the line, or across to the other side of the court during anytime in their service motion

But they happen way more often then they're called, I'd venture only about 15 % of foot faults are actually called, maybe less

Agreed, but at least they call it occasionally, letting the players know it's an option, unlike the time rule (20/25 seconds) which can be safely ignored.

Depends if your playing Murray at Wimbledon or not.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

i don't think it happens quite often as you guys are saying, usually when they foot fault they adjust their footing maybe an inch or two, the ones that usually foot faults are serve and volleyers.

Is there a video on Isner's foot fault yesterday? He often foot faults when serving to the deuce court with his right foot (back foot).

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

i still don't understand why the modern players have a tendency to foot fault when they rearley serve and volley. edberg was a notorious foot faulter. in the club level 85% abuse this rule.

It's about time they provided a Hawkeye challenge system for footfaults as it is open to abuse and human error.

I am not sure I would say abuse, do you think everyone actually realises they are foot faulting, or a lot just aren't that concerned and do it accidently.

Default Re: Foot faults: how often do they really happen?

I agree with Snowwy they really don't know that they are footfaulting, i can say that 99% percent of foot faults are accidents. I really think though that this US Open line umpires are horrible so i don't think they foot fault that many times. If they can't see ball that is clearly in or out how can they see a foot fault.

Of all the majors the OZ open is the one that mainly punishes foot faulting. The other three majors don't really go all out looking for foot faults unless it is too obvious. On the tour it is very rare to see someone being called for foot faulting.
