Thread revival. This Friday my USTA team is playing the other top team in our league - a win means we advance to sectionals (no playoffs this year). My singles opponent will probably be "Billy," a chronic footfaulter, shady linecaller, and apparently a general D-bag. We play each team twice - in our last meet his court was the last to finish. We were cheering on our teammate in the tiebreaker and Billy actually yelled at the audience "hey guys, I really don't appreciate you cheering my errors." We weren't. He lost. This guy's entire foot is inside the line on every serve, first and second. He serves and volleys about 50% of the time. It's silly, and apparently he's been warned over and over, even by USTA officials, and doesn't care. According to my teammate, he also makes terrible line calls. So I'm thinking I should print out The Code and keep the page turned that says I can call blatant foot faults. I'll let him know at the end of his first service game (win or lose) that he's foot faulting on every serve and to please watch out for it. Big smile on my face, as friendly as can be. He'll probably flip out, whatever. Then when he pulls a really bad line call, I'll just do like HRB suggests: tell him that was a terrible call, he can have the point, but I'm going to start calling foot faults as stated in The Code. I'm just not sure of what to do if he retaliates (poor calls turn into outright hooking, he starts calling footfaults on me even though I don't, etc.).
