Foot Fault in tennis

Foot fault

The basic rule is the server should be behind the baseline and between the center mark and the sideline. Also if the feet touch the ground inside the base line before the strike the ball, the umpire will called foot fault. Also if feet touch the wrong side of the center mark or the feet touch the wrong side of the imaginary extension of the sideline, then the umpire will call foot fault. If the server’s first serve is a foot fault he/she has the second chance to serve as the normal fault.
