The modern game of tennis originated in Birmingham, England, in the late 19th century as "lawn tennis". Players have unlimited opportunities to challenge provided the challenges made are correct. Once three incorrect challenges are made in a set, they cannot challenge again until the next set. Tennis is enjoyed by millions of recreational players and is also a hugely popular worldwide spectator sport, especially the four Grand Slam tournaments.

Grand Slam tournaments:

  • the Australian Open played on hard courts;
  • the US Open played also on hard courts;
  • the French Open played on red clay courts;
  • Wimbledon played on grass courts;
