Tennis and its rules
Tennis is a racquet sport practiced on a rectangular track, delimited by lines and divided by a net. It is played between two players (singles) or between two pairs (doubles). The objective of the game is to throw a ball hitting it with the racket so that it bounces within the allowed limits of the opponent's field, trying that it cannot return it to get a second bounce on the ground and therefore a point. It originated in Europe in the late eighteenth century and was initially expanded by the English-speaking countries, especially among its upper classes. “Tennis taught me so many lessons in life. One of the things it taught me is that every ball that comes to me, I have to make a decision. I have to accept responsibility for the consequences every time I hit a ball” (5). As mentioned before, tennis is a sport that is known internationally, therefore, many people around the world play it. That is why there are rules to play it (technical and behavioral), and these must be followed at face value. There are many rules to play it, from when you enter the field to when you play the last point of the game; but they will talk about the rules that are most broken by professional players nowadays.
One that professionals commonly do not respect is the time between the point that ends and the point that is just beginning. According to the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) and the WTA (Women's Tennis Association) you have a time of 25 seconds to rest and the player who is serving, according to the order of the game, start to serve and with this start the new point. The rule was put because many of the players took too much time to rest between each point. For example, one of the players who has struggled most to follow this rule is the Serbian, currently number 3 in the world, Novak Djokovic, who said "The truth is that when you are playing, you lose track of time, so you care to do well your game, hit the ball well, try to win the game, I do not do it to bother anyone (as many accuse him) but it is because I must work more on it "(7). The Serbian has been fined between 5,000 and 7,000 dolars, this is because the fine increases depending on the number of times he has broken it and the time it has been exceeded.
But it can be said that exceeding time is somewhat less serious compared to other faults that have been made.
Such is the case of the rules of conduct, many players have been seen breaking this series of rules, among th...
