How often do they change tennis balls during a match?

That depends on the federation that the event is played under.

In tournaments played under the International Tennis Federation

rules, balls are changed after the first 9 games, then after the

next 11 games, then after the next 9 games, then after the next 11

games, and so on. In ATP and WTA tournaments, balls are changed

after the first 7 games and then every 9 games after that.
