Its tougher to call foot faults than line calls not only because of the distance involved but also because you have to choose between playing tennis and enforcing the rules. For singles in order to call a footfault you have to stop looking at the ball and instead look at the opponents feet. This is why reasonable people choose not to call footfaults in recreational matches- you have to compromise your own tennis playing in order to try and win the point through a technicality. Personally I would rather just play tennis.
