Tennis(2)

Part 2
In 1789, tennis-lover King Louis XVI of France excluded many important members of society from a meeting. These people were all very upset so they had their own meeting on a tennis court. While there, they signed a document called the Tennis Court Oath. Over 500 men swore to be loyal to the people of France and not the King. This event marked the beginning of the French Revolution. During this time, tennis nearly disappeared in Europe. The people destroyed everything that had to do with the King.

After the French Revolution ended, tennis became even more popular. In the 1870s, a new form of the game appeared - lawn tennis. This was great for players because all the tennis courts were now made the same. Tennis became a sport of the rich, and it was important to be polite to your opponent as well as the fans.

Today, men's and women's tennis are popular far and wide. Professionals make millions of dollars every year. People of all walks of life love to go to the nearest court and hit a ball over a net to each other. [www.enbus.cn 免费英语学习网站]

1789年,爱好网球的法国国王路易十六,在一次会议上排挤了许重要的社会人士参加。这些人士群情激愤,因而在一座网球场上召开他们自己的会议,并签署了一份名为网球场宜育的文件。500多名人士宣誓他们效忠法国人民,而非国王。这次事件标志着法国大革命的开端。丁在这期间,网球几乎在欧洲绝迹。人民将任何与国王有关的事物摧毁殆尽。

法国大革命结束后,网球变得比以前更为流行。19世纪70年代,一种新玩法出现了,也就是草地网球。这项新玩法对球员来说非常有意义,因为现今所有的网球场都按照相同的尺寸建造。网球变成了有钱人的运动,而且对敌手和球迷以礼相待也更为重要。

如今,男子和女子网球都普遍受到欢迎。职业选手每年都赚取百万美元的钞票。社会上的各阶人士都喜欢到离他们最近的网球场打网球。
