A model of various real-world trajectories of tennis shots on a simulated three-dimensional tennis court is constructed using a Maple worksheet. The model accurately predicts the trajectory of a tennis ball struck from any point on the court, with any velocity and any amount of topspin or backspin, and includes the ball's bounce from the court. A MS Word document is provided in which the physics underlying the model is explained and some examples of simulated shots are illustrated and discussed.
