I have hit first serves many times that the opponents thought were a little out but did not say or indicate anything. I then collect another ball and move to the other side to hit my next serve ... or better yet I hit the balls over the net to end the game.
Usually they say ... "um that was long" ... astonished that I could not read their minds and when I explain that a call would be nice it resolves the situation.
However at least several times a year (and it happened in sectionals also this year) the opponents are to embarrassed or shocked to speak up and concede me the point to me.
