Popularly played in highly televised tournaments like the Australian Open and Wimbledon, tennis can be played against a single opponent (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). Each hitter uses a tennis racquet to strike a felt-covered rubber ball around a net and into the opponent's side of the court. The Grand Slam tournaments, also called majors, are the four most important annual tennis events in the world.
A sport that usually spans for hours, the objective of tennis is to play the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return. The player who is unable to return the ball will not gain a point, while the opposite player will.
