Tennis | History
Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually or between two teams of two players each (doubles). The object of the game is to maneuver the ball in such a way that the opponent is not able to play a valid return, thus wining the game after a series of sets.
Sport originated in Europe at the end of the eighteenth century and its first references are given in Germany by the upper classes.
The expansion of the sport today is so great that it is practiced around the world. One of those countries is France with its French Open, also known as Roland Garros. The French Open is considered the main world championship of tennis and it is the second of the four annual tournaments of the Grand Slam, the other three are the Australian Open, Wimbledom and the US Open.
The first of four tournaments is the Australian Open held annually and competed in the last fortnight of January at Melbourne Park, first held in 1905.
The Wimbledon championship, commonly known simply as Wimbledon or the Championship, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, was founded in 1877, takes place in London and is competed in late June and early July is the third in the tennis competition according to the chronology of the Grand Slam competition.
In 1881 the US Open, formaly known as the United States Open Tennis Championships held its first event. It is the last of the four tournaments and consists of five championships, which are played over a two-week period in late August coinciding with the celebration of Workers' Day in the United States.
