I'm thinking about making a tennis video of my friend playing me. What angle should the camera be at? i.e. behind one person, on a wall behind one person, or have the whole court in view side-to-side.

Really depends what you're doing it for. Is it to analyse your reasons for winning and losing? In which case the classic "Wimbledon" view is great.

If you wanna see footwork then go lower and put it at shoulder height in one corner of the court.

If you wanna see depth of shot and approaches/net transitions then I'd say go for the side view.

Bear in mind that you will need a ridiculously wide angled lens for that or you'll need to shoot from about 75 feet away to capture the entire court.
