Herein, what is the first rule of tennis?
Rules of Tennis
The game starts with a coin toss to determine which player must serve first and which side they want to serve from. The server must then serve each point from alternative sides on the base line. At no point must the server’s feet move in front of the baseline on the court prior to hitting their serve.
Considering this, can a tennis match go on forever?
Scoring Sets and Matches
If the set score becomes tied at six games apiece, the athletes continue until one player or team wins by two games. In theory, these sets could go on indefinitely, so in 2019, tennis governing bodies instated new rules to prevent that.
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’.
Before each match a coin-toss takes place. The winner of the coin-toss can decide to serve or receive first. Alternatively he can also decide which side he wants to begin on. If he decides on the side, then the serving choice is left to the other player.
