Although originally called the sport Sphairistike, Greek word for "playing ball" because that was the basis which was based in an ancient Greek game for the creation of the sport. After players preferred to call themselves “tennis on the lawn” or simply "tennis" because it was easier to pronounce. Today is known as the "white sport" because of the color of the uniforms.
