Tennis is a terrific game demanding endurance, strength, speed, and precision. It is an athletic chess match between two players or four, one with a ball served at well over 100 miles per hour. Of course, the most popular tennis tickets are those for the Grand Slam. These tournaments, the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open are associated with the ATP, the major organizing body putting together money tournaments for professional tennis players.
The tennis season almost runs year round, with the Grand Slam taking the players from January to September. There are plenty of tournaments in between, so plenty of players are given a chance to use their rackets to take home some prize money and plenty of fans can see the stars of the game putting incredible spin on the ball or can return the ball right down the line. Each year a new star seems to emerge. The question is not whether he or she can emerge, but if he or she can maintain such excellence to be counted among the greats like Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Roger Federer for the guys and Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King, and Serena Williams for the ladies.
