Google may be a publicly traded company worth hundreds of billions of dollars, but it still knows how to have fun. In other words, Google sometimes acts as a start-up, even if this ship sailed a long time ago. From time to time, the company conceals an Easter egg or other secret object in its services. For example, did you know that doing a Google search for the word "askew" without quotation marks will flip the page? That's right, go try it! It's silly and fun.
Continuing his astonishing antics, Google has hidden a secret tennis game in its search engine. Believe it or not, it's actually a lot of fun to play. Accessing it could not be simpler either.

To play the game of tennis as shown in the picture at the top of this page, you must start by searching for "Wimbledon" without quotation marks. On the results page, you should see the details of the score and schedule of the Wimbledon 2019 tournament. To the far right, there is a small tennis ball icon. Depending on the resolution of your screen, you may need to scroll the screen to the right to view it. A click on the ball launches the game. Easy, no?
Until now, I've tested the game with both a Chromebook and an iPhone, and everything works beautifully. In other words, it is suitable for desktops and mobile devices. When using a desktop browser, you control the character with the arrow keys on the keyboard. On mobile, you touch the touch screen. Although both work well, I had more fun using a keyboard because it was more accurate and allowed me to get a higher score.
If you decide to play the game yourself, share your best score in the comments below.
