    infinitive and gerund

    please, explain me the different use and meaning of infinitive and gerund, as I don't quite understand how to use them.
    example : I like to play tennis and I like playing tennis, what's their different meanings?


    Thanks in advance.

    Re: infinitive and gerund

    There are examples in which the two forms have different meanings. In this case there is no difference.
