Rough or smooth?

(Sport: Tennis)

Definition

When deciding who will serve first or to select initial ends of court, a racket is normally spun and a player calls either "rough" or "smooth". Whether the strings fall rough side or smooth side up determines who makes the choice. Also known as "up or down". The alternative is to toss a coin.
