I pulled my lower abdominal muscle on the left side while serving. It hurts even when i try to lie down and get up. How do I treat it? Is it serious?

In brief: Pulled muscle

Usually not serious but may cause a lot of pain until you heal the muscle strain and sprain.
Stop tennis for a while to protect yourself and try to prevent repeated injury. See your doctor about physical therapy. Protect injury site and give yourself time to heal.
