# How do you calculate a tennis score?

Before we go into detail, here is your guide to scoring a game:

1. 0 points= Love.
2. 1 point = 15.
3. 2 points= 30.
4. 3 points= 40.
5. Tied score= All.
6. 40-40 = Deuce.
7. Server wins deuce point = Ad-In.
8. Receiver wins deuce point = Ad-Out.

## Similarly one may ask, is there a scoreboard in tennis?

The games are scored starting at “love” (or zero) and go up to 40, but that’s actually just four points. From love, the first point is 15, then 30, then 40, then game point, which wins the game.

Likewise, people ask, can you score 45 in tennis? However, in order to ensure that the game could not be won by a one-point difference in players’ scores, the idea of “deuce” was introduced. To make the score stay within the “60” ticks on the clock face, the 45 was changed to 40.

## Subsequently, is 15 a score in tennis?

For the unfamiliar, tennis starts with both players at zero, called love: “Love-all.” One person scores: 15 to love. The server’s score is said first, the receiver’s second. The other now scores, and they’re tied at “15-all.” The next point is 30, then 40, and the following point wins that game.

## Why do they say love in tennis?

The origins of ‘love’ as a score lie in the figure zero’s resemblance to an egg. In sport, it’s common to refer to a nil or nought score as a duck or goose egg, and the French word for egg is l’oeuf – the pronunciation of which isn’t too far removed from the English ‘love’.

## Why is the scoring in tennis so weird?

In fact, most tennis historians believe that the real reason for the odd scoring is an early French version of the game, Jeu de Paume. The court had 45 feet each side of the net and the player started at the back and moved forward each time he scored a point.

## Why do tennis points go up by 15?

The origins of the 15, 30, and 40 scores are believed to be medieval French. It is possible that a clock face was used on court, with a quarter move of the hand to indicate a score of 15, 30, and 45. When the hand moved to 60, the game was over.
