Tennis question

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by Ezyryder, Jan 24, 2007.

  1. Ok I don't mind the tennis, I don't watch it on TV religiously but will have a squiz at it from time to time...

    Question: why is it that sometimes they play 3 or 4 sets, otherwise 2 sets and it's over, other times 5 or 6 sets? Why is that? I'm sure it is a simple answer :?

  2. its all to do with the scoring and the level of tennis......women play best of three sets, men play best of five in the australian open.......

  6. I played club tennis as a teenager and have had the odd social hit since then, was embarrassing to ask about the set thing 'coz I shoulda known :oops:

  7. club tennis is played with different rules at times......i used to play 'hit and giggle' - we'd hit the ball then collapse in giggles of laughter....... :? :?

    the serious players hated us......

  8. So did I, that was the best part of it, the social bash-arounds the last 2 or 3 years have been like that :grin:
    I quit club stuff in my late teens because of the snobbery with the rich families and their crap attitudes towards us 'working class' folk. Maybe it was bec 2 or 3 of us with cheap racquets and sports clothes would beat their kids with all the gear out on the court and they couldn't cope :roll: I took up racquetball instead and had a blast!
