打游戏, 玩游戏 - da you2xi4, wan2 you2xi4 (play a game)
出界 - chu1 jie4 (over the line; outside)
下网 - xia4 wang3 (hit the net)
好球 - hao3 qiu2 (Good Shot!!; applies in any ball game)
正手 - zheng4 shou3 (forehand)
反手 - fan3 shou3 (backhand)
手秉 - shou3 bing3 (grip on racquet)
拍 - pai1 (racquet)
假的牌子 - jia3 de pai2zi (fake brand of racquet)
压线 - ya1 xian4 (on the line, in)
触网 - chu4 wang3 (touch the net but go over)
重发球 - chong2 fa1 qiu2 (let service)
发球 - fa1 qiu2 (serve)
