I will fall........... I thought that th defenition of a FF was when your foots on the line before the final swing (or swing)

Before contact with the ball. Correct me if I'm wrong.

"Before the final swing (or swing)"? Stay of the drugs, kids.

As Hewitt said to the line judge who called him on his FF: " Don't be a hero, Mate!!!!"

His foot position does suggest a foot fault often. However i doubt he does it often since it will be called on.

ESPN has shown replays of Hewitt's feet during serve many times. His toes are behind the line while the rest of his foot is over it. Sometimes he will FF because he plays so close to the line, however it appears he does much more than he actually does because his foot is right above the line.

Hey the Cannibis Ice Tea is only HempDrinking brewed MaryJane won't get you stoned (unless you ingest the bud material).

"THC" (tetrahydrocannabinol) is not water soluable therefore brewing MJ in water will not extract the THC. THC is fat soluable, hence when making MJ brownies, people typically saute the MJ in butter at a low temperature so that the THC is extracted into the butter so that it could be more even distributed in the batter mix.

Just an FYI.

Good day now. 8)

That's what makes it illegal; any part of the body touching the "ground" beyond the baseline and the continuously extended imaginary center line before "ball contact" (not final swing) is not allowed.

picture isn't good enough to call, the angle is wrong...

picture isn't good enough to call, the angle is wrong...Of course it is not appropirate to make a call based on pics! If you were being "reasonable" rather than "technical" than you would understand my point though.

Let me translate what I was saying in the prior post: "If that were in fact a shot of Hewitt foot faulting, then most likely (according to me of course!!!) it's the tip of his front foot that is touching the line before ball contact." ..................That's what I was saying!

The thing was, I was under the impression that Jonny was questioning whether or not if the body passes the line -- but not touching it on the ground -- if that was illegal. If that's what was confusing him, then I was clarifying things for him, telling him that a body part (and or any object that the player is wearing) must pass the line but has to be touching the ground in order for it to be illegal. It is legal to pass the line prior to making contact with the ball, but only as long as you do not touch the ground.

It's better to be "reasonable" than to be "technical". I could get all technical on you and pick you apart if I wanted to, but would there be a reason to do so?........No. Why?.......because I understand that you posted that comment possibly because you do not know whether or not I am aware of the fact that there's inconclusive evidence from certain camera angles. See, I give you the benefit of the doubt, rather then assume that you are just nit picking. Now that's what I mean by being reasonable.

Remenber when Hewitt foot faulted 20-25 times in that semi-final match against Federer last year at the U.S. Open?

... the tip of his front foot is touching the ball prior to ball contact. I don't know what clip you're looking at. But you are correct, serving the ball by kicking it is not legal.
____________

Bad camera angle. He could very well be elevated ... making this a legal service.

You know what I mean. It was a simple mistake. I corrected that post already. Let's be reasonable here people.
