Tennis is a game beautiful and glamorous. There has been some feelings like John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Boris Becker, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf. In addition to these veterans, the game is always in the news with the beautiful power play by Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Serena and Venus Williams today. Everyone follows the game with great interest and galleries overflow spectators during the final. The game is pretty easy, so that everyone can understand and play. But it does require a lot of fitness and stamina to run around the big pitch and hit the ball with powerful acceleration. Let’s find a way to play tennis, what are the necessary equipment and the scoring model.
First, you need a tennis court to play the game. At least two people can play the game and up to 4 people. The equipment required is a tennis racket, a tennis ball and net. You can buy these or make the rent. Also need to be placed in the appropriate shirt and shorts with tennis shoes on his feet.
Let’s take a look at the structure score. Most games start at 0 and then proceed to 1, 2 or 2, 4 and so sucesivamente.Pero tennis is different in that it has an initial rating of love, which is equivalent to zero. 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.
There are 5 states that the games will be played in the games men and 3 women’s games. Each set can be won by a player when he wins at least 6 games and has a margin of two games with his opponent. 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. Shoes and socks are also constructed to provide protection to the feet and absorb sweat and keep the dirt. Since feet are vital to the operation around the court, must be well protected.
These are the basics of how to play tennis with ease. Once you enter the court and handle the racket and ball, you feel excited and learn the game and with the help of his entrenador.En short time, you learn to play like a pro.
