On the other hand, I've pointed out to several guys in our tennis circle that they've been consistently foot faulting every single time they serve (I never tell them during a match, only outside of a match on a casual basis). Most of them responded like "Oh? Really?", then they went on foot-faulting again exactly like what they'd been doing before when match time comes again. I guess they think it's no big deal and they don't care to fix it. Of course I let it go and don't call them on it during a match.
