Random Fact

Ever wondered where the odd scoring came from in tennis? Sadly, it is not entirely clear but a common theory is that it came from medieval France and a clock may have been used to keep score. As such, the first point went to 3 o’clock (15.00) and the second point to 6 o’clock. Why not 45? As you need to win by two clear points, the hands would be moved back and forward 10 minutes so 40 was used. As you could fall back to 40 (no advantage) with two points needed to win, one theory is that the term “deuce” may have come from the French word “deux” (two). The term “love”, or no score, may be that zero looks like an egg and the French word for "the egg" is l'œuf.
