Best Answer

A tennis point can be won I several different ways.

1. If one player hits the ball out of bounds or into the net, the other player wins the point.

2. If a ball bounces twice on one players side, the other player wins the point.

3. If the ball makes contact with a permanent fixture before bouncing, the player that hit the ball loses the point (not including the net, usually occurs when the ball hits the ceiling).

4. If a ball bounces on one players side then hits a permanent fixture, the player that hit the ball wins the point ( usually occurs when the ball bounces then hits the net separating the courts).

5. If a player touches the net, he loses the point.
