Details of Bnp Paribas Showdown For The Billie Jean Cup and the Ticket Luck value
Tennis is one of the most popular games in the world. What started out as a fairly unstructured game where the players were meant to hit a ball across with their 'bats', the game has now come a long way into the mainstream. With some of the world's richest players and highest prize winnings, the game has become something of a cultural hit and every country in every continent in the world wants to be or is a part of the phenomenon of tennis. Players with attitude like Pete Sampras and the Williams sisters have elevated the game to a level that is on par with the sports stars of soccer and football.
One of the main draws to tennis is the fact that there are a number of tournaments held throughout the year. Almost every continent has its own tournament called an 'Open'. From the American Open to the Australian Open to Wimbledon, every tournament has its own color with a variety of lawns to be played on and a varying range of hosting. Another exciting aspect of tennis is that the game is not dominated by any particular country. The world number one's in recent years have come from Russia, Serbia, America, Italy and France. This proves that the game is always moving. The beauty of the Open tournaments is also the fact that upsets can be caused in these tournament and low seeds could beat world number ones and win the whole open, something that is always amazing to watch.
