TennisA sport that uses a racket that is practiced between two players or two couples in a rectangular court divided transversally by a net. It consists in pushing a ball with the racket over the net trying to make it bounce on the opposite field and trying to make the adversary not return the ball. The matches are played in three or five sets with a complex scoring system.
Apart from having a large number of techniques and resources, the most successful players need a great mental strength. Some are capable of turning around complicated matches, while others break down when the pressure and errors prevent them from playing as they are used to.
The key to success is to win all the games where you’re serving, and then try to win as many games as possible when the opponent’s serving. In a very tight match, winning by even one break point may result in a significant advantage.
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) is the maximum organization for world tennis, and its main objective is to regulate, expand and bring the sport all over the world.
