When I was younger, I thought tennis is a really simple sport. All you need to know is how to hold the racket and use it to hit the ball. As grew older, yes you are right, I realized it takes more than that. Tennis is a game of speed and strategy (well most sports and games require a good strategy). And that racket, it is not easy to grip, more hit a ball with it.

Tennis is enjoyed by countless recreational players and is also a hugely renowned worldwide spectator sport, especially the four Grand Slam tournaments (likewise known as the "Majors"): the Australian Open fought on hard courts, the French Open played on red clay courts, Wimbledon played out on grass courts, and the US Open played also on hard courts.

The Australian Open 2012 was formally launched last October 4 in Melbourne, Australia. As early as now, many tennis aficionado have shown excitement for another round of tennis Australian open. News has it that it is set to offer the highest pot money in the Grand Slam Tennis history ever.
