And if I do, can I do something active but not intesne (like a tennis practice) on the rest day?

Any thoughts would be great!
you don't have to rest on your rest day, that's why it's rest or stretch X. You should be okay to do a little cardio, just don't get burned out.

I never thought I say this but I've been feeling burnt out of P90X, and not so motivated lately. I've really been modifying the program recently. Yesterday I did my own version of chest and back and it was a nice break, even though it was pretty damn rough.
