Tennis is 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 the opponent's court.

The modern game of tennis originated in
Birmingham, England in the late 19th century
as "lawn tennis"
After its creation, lawn tennis spread
throughout the upper-class English-speaking
world.

A tennis match is determined through the
best of 3 or 5 sets.
A set consists of games, and games, in turn,
consist of points.
A game consists of a sequence of points
played with the same player serving. A game
is won by the first player to have won at least
four points in total and at least two points
more than the opponent.



The score of a tennis match during play is always
read with the serving player's score first.
A game point occurs in tennis whenever the
player who is in the lead in the game needs only
one more point to win the game. The
terminology is extended to sets (set point),
matches (match point), and even championships
(championship point).
For example, if the player who is serving has a
score of 40-love, the player has a triple game
point (triple set point, etc.)



A break point occurs if the receiver, not the
server, has a chance to win the game with the
next point.
Typically, a player wins a set by winning at
least six games and at least two games more
than the opponent.
The final score in sets is always read with the
winning player's score first, even if the
winning player loses set(s) during the match
(e.g., "6–2, 4–6, 6–0, 7–5").
