Tennis is a racket game which is played by a single player against an opponent or between two pairs of two players each. Each player wears a strung racket with wooden ends to hit a small hollow rubber ball, often covered with felt or other material over or on a tennis court and into the opponents court. The object of the game is to be the first player to return the ball to the other players caught back into the open position. When a ball is struck by a player, it creates a buzz in that area and that player will be out of the game. The object of the game is to be the first player to hit the net. If you hit the net and the ball then returns to the tennis court it is called tennis play and your opponent will be out.
Points are scored during tennis play through earning points by hitting the net or being the first player to hit the net. Additional points can be earned through executing various serves including the serve from the baseline, the forehand and the backhand. Court goals can also be set up through hitting the net or through hitting a certain number of volleys. A successful rally can also earn points for the winning team.
Winning the first set of games in a tennis match is the most important thing to consider. If no player is able to win the first six games then the match is considered to be tied. Then the player with the most wins will be the winner of the match and the player with the least amount of wins will be the loser of the match. Matches are usually played to the death when both players are playing at their maximum potential.
