RULES OF THE GAME IN BIG TENNIS

The basic rules of tennis were laid already at the initial stage of formation and further improved.

Currently, for official competitions, the rules developed are developed. The version in Russian presented on the official website is exhaustive, it regulates the conduct of any tennis match taking into account all the subtleties and nuances that may arise in its process.

We tried to briefly, clearly and clearly state the basic rules of the game of tennis.
Alexey Lukin
Main coach
However, Tennis Group Academy coaches are deeply convinced that this is excessive information for any novice tennis player. Studying such a dry, formalized text is of no interest. That is why my colleagues and I prepared a series of articles in which we tried to set out the rules of tennis in a way that was interesting.

Tennis Rules
A tennis match consists of three or five sets. To win the match, the tennis player needs to get the upper hand in two or three sets, respectively. In the tennis sections of the Tennis Group, we regularly conduct matches according to a shorter system.

The most common unofficial schemes that are used in our schools are a match from one set and up to 4 games. There are other options that you will learn about in training.

Set account
The set, in turn, can be played according to two schemes with a tie-break (the most common option) and without.

In the event that a tie-break is provided, according to the rules of tennis, the set remains with the tennis player who first won 6 games, but only if the opponent lags by more than 2 games. If the score becomes 5: 5, then the set continues to 7. With a score of 6: 6, a tie-break begins.

If the set is played according to the scheme without a tie-break, it is also played up to 6 games. But if the gap between the rivals, when one of them reaches this mark, does not amount to 2 games, the set will continue until this gap appears.

In Grand Slam tournaments, the rules have one peculiarity. The first 4 sets are played with a tie-break, and the decisive 5th is held until there is a difference of 2 games.

Many remember the Wimbledon tournament match between John Isner and Nicolas May, which lasted more than 11 hours. The last set at Wimbledon is held without a tie-break, and the final result 70-68, recorded on the scoreboard, marked a new record of duration in the history of world tennis.
Game Account
The announcement of the account in the game remained the same as at the dawn of the formation of the game. An ad begins with the serving player. Winning the first point is fifteen, the second thirty, the third forty. Winning the fourth ensures victory in the game only if both tennis players have not won three times at this point.

The next point, provided it is won by the server, provides an advantage – they say more. Accordingly, if you lose, the advantage will go to the host – less. To win the game exactly after the score, you need to take two points in a row. That is, it is more important for the server to score the next point to complete the game in his favor.

One of the main differences between the rules of tennis and the rules in other sports is the announcement of the account. “15, 30, 40” comes from the fact that previously the account passed in relation to rates and time. Then the score was 15, 30, 45 and 60. Then the score 45 was changed to 40 for a better harmony, and the score 60 was just a win for the game.
Tie-break account
According to the rules of tennis, points won at a tie-break are considered as “one”, “two”, “three”, etc. The tiebreaker is played until 7.

The first player to score 7 points wins the tie-break and set, provided that the separation from the opponent is more than two points. If the gap is less than two, then the game continues until the moment when any of the players can not achieve the necessary advantage.

The first serve in a tie-break starts the player in turn. In the next two draws, the opponent is already giving. Then the tennis players alternately serve at the next two points until the end of the tie-break. The player who was the first to start the tie-break accepts a serve in the next set.
