Tennis

A tennis racket and ball

Tennis is a game played between either two players ("singles") or two teams of two players ("doubles"). Players use a stringed racquet to strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt over a net into the opponent's court.

QuotesEdit

  • I honestly don't understand it, because it's somebody hitting a ball to where you can't get it, but you want to get it. I think they should rethink it.
  • I have these two sayings, “Champions adjust” and “Pressure is a privilege”. Tennis teaches you about those things. When you're playing a tennis match, you can't say, “Stop, I want to do another take”, or “Can I play that over?” That's the way sports are.
  • To see Good Tennis! What divine joy
    Can fill our leisure, or our minds employ?
    Let other people play at other things;
    The King of Games is still the Game of Kings.
