The Rules in Tennis for Singles Tennis
Tennis is a racket game which is played between two competitors each employing a unique tennis racket designed and manufactured for them by another company. Each player carries a unique tennis racket which is strung by string with thin felt over or behind a net to strike an object ball, called a tennis ball, and into the opponents court. The object of the game is for the player to become the first player to bring the ball into contact with the other players court or net. Tennis was originally developed in France, where it was known as Ete de France. In America, tennis was made popular by some of the country’s most notable tennis players such as Arthur Roberts and Jimmy Connors.
At first tennis was played with one on one exhibitions and slowly started to be played with two players on each team. Since this time, tennis has evolved into what we know today as singles tennis and is played between two rivals in a singles match. When you play a singles game of tennis, you are usually playing without your partner; however, if your partner is not available you may find yourself paired against another opponent. Often times this is seen on televised tennis matches; where two evenly matched opponents are set up against each other and played against each other until one player wins the point and the other has to go to the loser’s bracket.
After the two points are set, either player who reached twenty-one points first, or last, wins the match and the other player have to go to the loser’s bracket, or fall down to their pre-match number in singles tennis. If the player winning the match uses any breakable object in their favour to win the match, then they must take it to their opponent and ask them to break the object in whatever way they see fit before the next point is played. For example, if a player is using the moon to win the point, the referee will call the breaker. If the player using the moon does not ask the opponent to break it, then the referee may call it a foul. These are the rules applied in singles tennis.
