Tennis is an expensive racket sport which is mainly played between two competitive teams of two professional players each, or between a pair of two players at the international level. Each player uses a special strung racket with leather thongs to hit an accurately striking ball on to a hard, dry net covered with felt or over top of a grassy surface. Although tennis can be an expensive sport, it is also one of the most popular, especially for men as this game involves hitting a ball with a large amount of force, often more than a typical tennis court. It can also be one of the most exciting sports to watch as the sport relies on a lot of movement, and a well trained tennis player can anticipate the ball’s motion before it happens, which is often necessary to win a point.
Another type of tennis that differs from the usual game played between two players is doubles. In doubles, there are usually four people playing at once against a team of five. This type of tennis is much more dynamic and fast paced than the usual game played between two players, and it is also considered to be one of the most competitive games. The winner in doubles competition usually gets to take on the other team’s partner, who usually takes on the other members of the winning team.
A tiebreak, or third set, is an interesting part of a tennis game that doesn’t occur in doubles play. In a tiebreak, the last set of the match is usually played using a three-point tiebreak, where the players play at their maximum amount of points, which is normally two points. This encourages a player or team to play at their maximum potential and to not get too comfortable early in the game. However, if the players tiebreak and still continue to play at full capacity, it results in a 4-way tiebreak, where all four players get to play.
