  1. Thanks for the video, it's so clear and easy to understand. I'm playing with my friends tomorrow so hopefully all goes well. Thanks for the video 👍👍👍👍👍🙏

  2. I hope you know I'm watching these because I have an exam. But your videos are very enjoyable and informative, keep it up 🙂

  3. Im playing tennis for over 8 years and thrust me guys that sport is worth every little bit of efort.And in this really good video to watch if you want at least a bit to learn these complicated rules.

  4. I don't know why I'm watching tennis videos on a saturday night, but I found this video very useful, now I can continue watching tennis matches and understand what the heck is going on

  5. Wait, so suppose if the ball gets hit to my side and it bounces once. Do I have to hit the ball immediately before it bounces?

  6. Coco vs Naomi brought me here. I don't know much about tennis, but I respect their dedication to the game and want to learn more.

  7. I’m going to be a junior in high school and decided to do tennis because it’s something I’ve always wanted to do but I’ve been too scared. I played a few times before and I wasn’t too bad but I have my first practice tomorrow morning and I’m scared because many of my soon to be teammates have played for a few years and I’m intimidated by them. I am only comfortable with one of the girls on the team but I’m pretty sure she’ll be staying with her other friends and I’m just nervous about the whole social scene.

  8. I’m playing tennis next year (well in a couple of weeks bc school starts August 19 for me) and I haven’t played tennis since seventh grade and I’m now a freshman going into high school and I feel like I won’t be good enough :(, but for now I will try to practice more on my footwork bc that’s what I had trouble with. I just hope I will not be thought less of ..

  9. 2:53 – you say that a Let requires the ball to have hit the net on a serve and land in the opponent's area, yet the video shows Murray's serve hitting the net and bouncing off wide. Is that a let, because it didn't bounce back onto Murray's side of the net? Or is the clip simply a misrepresentation because a Let must still land within the legal square on the opponent's side?

  10. 2:10 can someone inform this man that the tennis racket is in fact, not part of the body. Thanks. 😂

    Very helpful video! Thanks!

  11. What if the ball hits the top of the net and makes it to the other side during a game, do they carry on? Or does a point go to the other player.

  12. Get all the explanations about “deuce” but still can’t see why they just don’t call it 40 all. After all we know you need 2 points to win the game after that, we don’t need to be reminded!
