The physics of tennis is very intricate for a sport based on relatively simple conceptual principles, such as hitting and bouncing a ball. As we add in all the basic mechanical principles that have a effect, the physics of tennis quickly gets quite complicated. In addition, ball spin plays a large role in the sport and dramatically changes the flight and bounce physics of tennis balls.
    The basic tennis physics presented here only begin to scratch the surface of the vast physics of tennis. Other interesting areas of tennis physics include modeling the trajectory of a tennis ball and determining the sweet spots of tennis racquets, as well as the physics of specific tennis strokes such as the serve.
