The modern game of tennis originated in the United Kingdom in the late
19th century as "lawn tennis" and had heavy connections to the ancient
game of real tennis After its creation, tennis spread throughout the upper-
class English-speaking population before spreading around the world.
Tennis is an Olympic sport and is played at al levels of society at al ages.
The sport can be played by anyone who can hold a racket, including people
in wheelchairs. In the United States, there is a col egiate circuit organized

Except for the adoption of the tiebreaker in the 1970s, the rules of tennis
have changed very little since the 1890s. A recent addition to professional
tennis has been the adoption of "instant replay" technology coupled with a
point challenge system, which al ows a player to challenge the official cal
of a point. Along with its mil ions of players, millions of people worldwide
follow tennis as a spectator sport, especially the four GrandSlam
tournaments (sometimes referred to as the "majors"): the Austriallian open,
the French open, Wimbledon, and the US.
