In tennis, love is a word that represents a score of zero, and has been used as such since the late 1800s. It’s not perfectly clear how this usage of love came to be, but the most accepted theory is that those with zero points were still playing for the “love of the game” despite their losing score.
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.
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.
