This app is a glossary of tennis terminology.

Here are some few examples,

Ace: a serve where the tennis ball served is served in and not touched by the receiver. Aces are usually powerful and generally land on or near one of the corners at the back of the service box.

Action: another word for spin.

Ad court: the left side of the court of each player.

Advantage: when one player wins the first point from a deuce and needs one more point to win the game.

Advantage set: an advantage set, as opposed to a "tie-break set" is won by a player/team having won six games with a two games advantage over the opponent(s). Final sets in the singles draws of the Australian Open, the French Open, The Championships, Wimbledon and the tennis Olympic event as well as the Davis Cup are all advantage sets.

All: is used by the chair umpire to announce scores when both players have the same number of points or the same number of points: 30–all (30–30), 15–all (15–15), etc... When both players are at 40, the preferred term is "Deuce".

All-court: A style of play that is a composite of all the different playing styles, which includes baseline, transition, and serve and volley styles.

Alley: the area of the court between the singles and doubles sidelines, also known as the tramlines.

Alternate: a player or a team that gains acceptance into the main draw of a tournament due to a main draw player or team withdrawing, when there are no qualies with potential lucky losers.

Approach shot: a shot used as a setup as the player runs up to the net, often using underspin or topspin.

ATP: Association of Tennis Professionals, the men's professional circuit.

ATP Champions Race: The ATP points ranking system that starts at the beginning of the year and by the end of the year mirrors the ATP entry system ranking. The top eight players at the end of the year qualify for the Tennis Masters Cup, not used starting from 2009.

Australian formation: (in doubles) a formation where the server and partner stand on the same side of the court (deuce or advantage court) before starting the point
