A sport usually played between two players (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each player uses a racket that is strung to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over a net into his opponent's court. The object of the game is to play the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a good return. Tennis is an Olympic sport and is played at all levels of society at all ages. The sport can be played by anyone who can hold a racket, including people in wheelchairs.
The player gets 15 points each time his opponent either misses the ball, strikes the ball to the outside of the court or the net, or fails to serve the ball twice. The player can only get a maximum of 40 points. Upon winning a break point, the player wins the game and this continues after the player wins 6 games or 2 more games than his opponent, thus winning the set.
If the game system is best of 3, the player must win 2 sets to win the match. If it is best of 5, he must win 3 sets to do exactly the same.
