My favorite sport is tennis. I learned to love this sport by doing it three years.

I love this sport because it’s an individual sport where there is an exchange with an opponent. I find it exciting because you should excel against an opponent (the slightest mistake can be fatal).

Tennis is an English adaptation of tennis. It was in 1874 that Major Wingfield devised the first rules of the game.

Tennis is a racket sport played by two players (singles) or four players (doubles).

The objective of the game is to return the ball to the other side in the limits of the tennis court marking the point by putting the opponent out of range or by forcing him to make a mistake.

The player who serves must be placed behind the baseline and must send the ball over the net into the service area diagonally opposite.

During a game, here's how points are counted:

- zero: no points scored in the game;

- fifteen: for a point scored;

It takes six games to win a set and three winning sets for win a match of men and two winning sets for win a match of women.
