Tennis is an aggressive racket game which is played between two competing teams of two players each, who then play against a stationary opponent in a Wimbledon or Queen’s Court indoor complex. Each player carries a specially strung tennis racket, which is swung by the hand with a firm grip onto the surface of a hardwood court or over or on top of a net. Each player gets two minutes for each half hour period in a singles or doubles game. The winner is the player with the most points.
The object of the game is to be the first player to get to the end of the tennis court with the least number of strokes remaining, at the end of time, to have the maximum number of points. If a player hits the net with the tennis racket and it lands beyond the court, a point is awarded to that player. A stroke goal is achieved when a player takes the entire tennis court, with both feet and the playing partner’s feet, and touches the ball with the racket before the end of the outside lines. A forehand or backhand shot is required to achieve a point. A stroke goal is not reached until a player has taken the entire tennis court, with both feet and the playing partner’s feet, and touches the ball with the racket over or on top of the net for at least one hundred and forty-five seconds.
Each individual competition within a Grand slam tournament is separated into three categories: singles, doubles, and grand slam semi-annuals. For instance, the Wimbledon and US Open are the only two tournaments that make use of the format for all three separate categories. A grand slam semi-annual consists of four singles matches with one winner per team per occasion. For instance, the US Open has the usual eight-man rotation between the men’s and women’s division, with a break of the usual format for the semi-annual occasion.
