Tennis And Roland-Garros

 TENNIS

Tennis is a racket sport. Tennis is an English adaptation of French « jeu de paume ». It  is played either by two players or four players in two teams of two. The players use a racket. This racket serves to strike a rubber ball. The purpose of the game is to strike the ball so that the opponent cannot put it back  within the limits of the ground either by marking the point by putting the opponent out of reach of the ball, or by obliging him to commit a fault (if his ball does not fall again within the limits of the court, or if it does not cross the net) . When the match is simple, the court is used entirely, but when the match is double, it is divided into two (left and right) corridors, used each by one player. The match is won by taking away a maximum of points, games, then sets, according to the rules of the game, variable according to the sex, the age, the tournament … The match points are deceptive: 15, 30, 40, set game .

Tennis is one of the most popular racket sports !

ROLAND-GARROS

 

The Roland-Garros stadium is a tennis stadium in hard-packed surface built in 1927 and situated on the West side of Paris. It welcomes every year the International Tennis Tournament.

Roland-Garros contains all in all 24 courts. The three biggest are the center court,  Suzanne-Lenglen court and court nb 1.

    Hello

    He is BRILLANT!!!!!!!
    I Iike tenis and I look at the tenis on the TV!!!
    I know somebody who and already went Roland Garros!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I LIKE YOUR ARTICLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. collegealaric11

      Interesting comment. Yes, you’re right, tennis is great… but it has 2 « n »!!

      careful!! « and » = « et » (conjonction)
      In this case, you mean « est déjà allé », which necessitates the present perfect (have + past participle)
      So…. »and already went Roland Garros » = « has already been to Roland Garros »

    I like this article because i like sport but i don’t like tennis. It is a great article because they explains well what is the tennis. Rolland garros is a great competition.

    1. collegealaric11

      « what is the tennis » = « what tennis is » Tennis is the subect of the sentence, so the verb goes after it.
      You’re right, R. Garros is wonderful!

  13. renaud

    Roland Garros was a very interresting competition. it is a pity just that no Frenchmen won :(. we will see who won the next competition.
