If two players, the game begins with love, everything. When the server gets a point, it becomes 15-love and love-15 if vice versa. After 15, the following points are 30, 40 and game.
If both players are tied on 40 points, then a player must win two consecutive points to win the game. Called the devil, when a player wins a point, it is called advantage (the player). If again wins another point, then wins the game. But if the opponent wins the point, the game returns to deuce. Again, one player will try to win two consecutive points and win the game.

For example, a player can win 6-4, ie, 6 games to four in a set. The winning party has to win 3 sets to enter the next round of the event or winning the championship. If both players win 6 games in a set, then the set is a set of tie and the player wins 7-6.
The serve is the main part of the game of tennis. The ball must be thrown in the air with the player’s feet placed at the desired point. The player has to hit the ball when it comes to land diagonally across the court. After each game, the players change sides of the court. Players are allowed 90 seconds of rest between sets and 2 minutes rest between sets, but only after the third game is over.
The game of tennis can also be played by four players and is called a double play. Men and women can play a game of mixed doubles as well. The rules and scoring model is almost the same.
It is important to hold the racket in a particular way. Tennis racquets and balls are also made for the player can handle without much problem.
