If you're a good tennis player, it's probably safe (especially early in pregnancy), but it's not a sport I'd recommend taking up while you're pregnant.

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends physical activity and exercise throughout pregnancy but suggests avoiding activities where there's a high risk of falling. Unless you're a seasoned tennis player, that risk is very real.

Tennis involves rapid changes in direction. With the changes in your center of gravity during pregnancy, these rapid twists and turns could make you more prone to falling.

And falling could result in contractions or placental abruption—a serious pregnancy complication in which the placenta separates from the uterus. Either event can place the baby at risk of premature delivery.

As with any activity, consider your skill, the increased risk for injury as your body changes, and any risk factors (such as cervical insufficiency) that would indicate you should avoid aerobic exercise.
