out vs. out of bound

When playing the tennis with others, if the ball goes out of border, should I say "out" or "out of bound"? I think "out" is enough. Am I right? Thank you!

    When actually playing, a player will usually call the ball 'out' (announce they saw it hit the ground out of bounds) using either the single word Out! or the short phrase It was out or It went out.
