Tennis Quick Tips | Fun, Fast and Easy Tennis - No Lessons Required

Once again, we're going to talk about tennis rules.  You know I trull love tennis rules.  Because just when you think you know them, something in a match happens that makes you think you don't.  In this week's episode, we're talking about the rule on doubles bounces, or when the ball is "not up."  By the end of the episode, you'll know what the rule on this is, who makes the double bounce call, and just what a "not up" ball is.
