Tennis is a highly regarded sports that is also known worldwide. Aside from the growing popularity that tennis commands, greater number of its fans are also looking forward to betting from bookmakers or via online such as in 918Kiss. Believe it or not, tennis is just few spots behind soccer as well as horse racing when it comes to the profits generated for bookies in UK.
It wasn’t able to land that spot without good reason of course. The sport of tennis is such an interesting and intriguing game that it offers extensive variety of markets and that tourneys are taking place all throughout the year. As for its scoring system, it might be a bit confusing at first but the moment you get used to it, it’s actually plain and simple.
Like with any other sports, each game starts with 0 or also called “love”. From there onwards, the scoring goes something like this:
- Winning a point gives you 15
- Get another point and you are at 30
- Score for the third time and you have 40 and;
- The last score gives you the W.
On the other hand, once the player reached the last score, it is where the “deuce” kicks in. In the event that the score arrives at 40-40, then the score of either players have to reach 2 consecutive points to declare the winner. Say that the player won a point, then it automatically moves to the “advantage”.
Losing the momentum and the score reverted to deuce. This is an indefinite cycle until one of the players or teams score 2 consecutive points after deuce.
Serve is an integral element in a tennis match. Not only that, it is also a valuable thing to learn since the serve commences the start of the match. There are few rules to be remembered when serving and that includes a toss coin to determine which player will be serving, players are alternating with each side of the court they are serving from, the server aims to hit the ball diagonally right into the service box and, at no stage the server’s foot move in front of baseline before serving.
As soon as the game begins, there are basic regulations that can’t be forgotten like the fact that the player can’t hit the ball twice, they have to hit the ball just before it bounces for the second time, the ball has to hit within boundaries of the court to keep the possession, if the ball hits any part of the line or the line itself, then it’s in. Additionally, if the player touched the net either with their racket or body, they will automatically lose a point.
