Which court do you serve into first in tennis?

I will interpret this question as asking which SIDE of the tennis court do you serve into first in tennis. The two halves of the tennis court are called "ad" (short for advantage) and "deuce." Your ad court is diagonal to your opponent's ad court and your deuce court is diagonal to your opponent's deuce court. You begin serving on your ad side diagonally into your opponent's ad side. If you are facing the net from the baseline, the ad side is the right and the deuce side is the left. In simpler terms, you start on the right side and serve diagonally into the left side of your opponent's court. This is a link to a tennis court diagram. Perhaps a visual will help better understand the answer to your question. It can be found on the related links.

How should you cover the court in a tennis doubles match?

Covering the court during a doubles match is very different from covering the court during a singles match. First, you have more tennis court to cover. Secondly, you have to figure out how to move around and cover the court with your doubles partner. The key is to move around the court together as a team. Maybe you play the ad (backhand) side. Your partner is pulled out wide for a forehand. You need to side shuffle along with them in their direciton because the center of the court needs to be covered. Your partner will probably hit a defensive shot. You will have to step in and recover your opponent

What are some ways to pull your opponent off the court in tennis?

Pulling your opponent off the court means that you are making them run either far out wide or far back from the baseline for a shot. This puts your opponent in a defensive position. You always want to strive to put your opponent in a defensive position because then you can swoop in and take charge of the point. Here are some ways to pull your opponent off the court: Try hitting a powerful shot or a wide angle to make your opponent become out of position or pulled off the court. When this happens there is a great chance that your opponent will opt for a high percentage shot by hitting a high floating ball or lob to allow time to get back into position. Run quickly to the net and hit an overhead winner or make them run to the opposite side of the court for your next shot. You can also pull your opponent off the court during a serve. Hit a serve with a topspin or slice angle.
