New research shows perfecting your tennis game could also improve your health.

Researchers in Australia looked at how participating in six different sports affected a person's life expectancy.

Racquet sports, which topped the list, were linked to a 47-percent lower risk of death from any cause, followed by swimming, aerobics and cycling.

Soccer and running were not shown to reduce the risk of death.
