Mostly anyone can just pick up a ball run towards a destination while trying to avoid getting tackled.
While in tennis you have at least two that you need to be proficient at to even win games. The serve and return. The serve especially needs more work than most strokes because of so many moving parts.

. I made varsity without trying, and we won CIF the year I played. I've played tennis for two years and I'm still at the 4.0ish level.
buuuuuutttttt....I think you're just nitpicking.
