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.
When the hand moved to 60, the game was over. 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.
“Love” means zero. In tennis, the server’s score is given first, so “love-fifteen” means the server has no points, the opponent has fifteen. The score in a tennis game progresses from love to fifteen to thirty to forty to game. If both players achieve forty then it’s called a deuce.
The word ‘let’ originates from the word ‘lettian,’ which means ‘to hinder. ‘ Can you challenge a let? In professional tennis, players are not allowed to challenge a let call.
