Dress nicely. While jeans aren't technically banned, a smart casual look and comfortable shoes follow proper etiquette.
Sit down and shut up
Stay seated and remain quiet during play. If you absolutely must speak, keep it to a whisper. Wait until play has stopped to visit the restroom or snack bar.
Respect the players
Make sure the ball is dead before you react: A premature cheer or groan could cause havoc for a player.
Be more reserved than you would at a team sporting event. Don't heckle the players; make calls; shout advice; applaud errors; abuse the chair umpire; or lead a chant.
Applaud whoever makes a great shot, even if it's not the player you're rooting for. Because proper etiquette while watching a tennis match is all about good sportsmanship.
