Tennis is a racquet sport played is played between two players (singles) or between two pairs (doubles). It originated in Europe in the late nineteenth century and expanded at first in anglophone countries, especially among its upper classes. Today's tennis has become global, and is played in almost every country in the world. Since 1926, with the creation of the first tour, is a professional sport. It is also an Olympic sport since Seoul 1988, having lost that category in 1924.Tennis originated in France in 1400. The game was similar to the present, but the mesh was a mound of earth. He hit the ball with his hand, then led the racket. The modern game originated in England by Walter Winfield in 1873. Four years later, was internationalized through the Wimbledon tournament.Outbridge Mary introduced him to the United States after visiting friends in England.In Puerto Rico, the first figure in tennis was Walter L Cope. In 1959, Central American Games in Caracas, Charles Gateway stands. More recently we have Gigi Fernóndez, double champion winning international tournaments.actually tennis has evolved in a way very demanding. the uniform has made of cotton. today the uniform is made of polyester because is lighter than cotton. is the same case of the rackets. at the beginning of the tennis rackets has made of wood. actually the rackets are made of carbon fiber. the carbon fiber is lighter and harder than the wooden racket. A tennis match begins with a kick of players, which should hit the ball so that this pot inside the box opposite the side that takes, that is if a player draws from the right, the ball should throw in the box on the left but always in the box attached to the network, the side of his opponent. For each point the player gets two chances, if it fails the first, has more. In the event that the throw hit the ball in the net and go to the track of the opponent and into the square of serve is repeated.

If the throw is valid, it starts a rally in which the players, or partners, adversaries use to hit the ball alternately. The point ends when one player does not return the ball properly, either by not hitting the ball before this boat twice in his side, hitting and not getting boat on the side of the or opponents, or by hitting him with his body or any object other than the racket that has, in either case the point goes to the player or the opposing team. A tennis match is composed of sets, the first to win a certain number of sets is the winner. Each set consists of games. In every game there is a player who rolls, which alternates. In turn, the games are composed of points.

The first to win 4 points with a minimum difference of 2 points over his rival is the winner of the game, where neither players or teams have a two to reach four points wins the game first to make a difference of 2 points. Counting points is quite particular: when a player wins his first point your scorecard is 15, when you win 2 points 30, and when you win 3 points 40. Example: if the server of the game has earned 3 points and 1 point receiver is the score 40-15. Punch always score first appointment. When both players are tied at 40 are said to be "deuce" or "equal." The first player or team that wins a point after deuce achieved an "advantage" if he wins the next point wins the game, otherwise it will be at deuce again until there is a difference of two points.

The player who wins the set is the one who gets to 6 games, with a difference of two. If a player reaches 6 games, but with a difference of 1 (6-5) must continue until one gets the proper difference. If the regulation sets a limit tournament play, will have to play a tie-break "or" sudden death ", in which the outcome of the set is played by points (one-zero, two-zero, three-zero etc.), until someone manages to get to 7 points, with a difference of 2. If there is no difference 7 points 2 (eg 7-6), will have to wait for one of the players get a difference of 2 points, I get that being the victory in the tie-break and September 7-6. The player starts taking off in a tie-break "only has a kick turn (with first and second service) and from there, take turns in 2 shifts per player until the end of it.
