Tennis Terms

Ace : A serve that lands inside the lines and is untouched by the opponent

Advantage : The point that follows a deuce score. If the player wins this point he wins the game, otherwise it goes back to deuce!

Ad-Court : The left side of the tennis court. It is called Ad-Court because the ad points are always played from this side.

Approach Shot : A shot that the player follows to the net is called an approach shot

ATP : The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) is the governing body of men’s Tennis!

Backspin : On a shot with backspin the ball rotates backwards. These shots usually stay pretty low

Break : When you win a game during which your opponent was serving that is called a break in Tennis!

Break Point : The receiver is said to have a break point whenever he is in a situation where a point won results in him winning the game off of the server.

Cross-Court : A shot that is hit diagonally into the opponent?s court

Deep : A shot that lands very close to the baseline rather than short around the service line

More Tennis Terms

Deuce : An expression that is used when the actual score is 40-40

Deuce-Court : The right side of the tennis court. It is called Deuce-Court because all deuce points are played from this side

Double Bagel : A match that ends with the score 6-0 6-0 is often called a double bagel in tennis circles. One of the funniest tennis terms in my opinion

Double Fault : The server has two serves to start the point. Whenever he misses both he looses one point in the game and this situation is called a double fault.

Doubles : When you have four players on the court and two are playing against two this is called a doubles match.

Down the Line : A shot that is hit straight along the sideline into the opponent?s court

Error : Any shot in Tennis that does not land within the lines that it is supposed to land within is called an error

Foot Fault : The server is not allowed to move over or even touch the baseline during his service motion. If he does so it is a so-called foot-fault and his serve is considered a fault.

Forced Error : When Player 1 hits a really good shot that forces Player 2 to miss that is called a forced error

Groundstroke : Whenever the ball bounces on your side before you hit it that is called a Groundstroke. Forehands, Backhands, and Slice Backhands are all groundstrokes.
