In fact, in modern tennis, there are only 4 points per game. But why does tennis score on a scale of 0 -15-30-40? At first, since its inception, outdoor tennis applies the same badminton scoring method, up to 15 points before it is won.
But when the All England Club, the first organization, came into being, they brought the score of the reading of tennis scores to game-set scores. That’s similar to the indoor tennis play that the French aristocrats played in the medieval era, the game named called jeu de paume.
The calculation of tennis scores in jeu de paume is very complicated, the All England Club cleverly cuts off those complicated things, retaining what is needed to have a score reading in tennis shaped like now.
A large clock is placed on the tennis court that is used to calculate points during the match, with every quarter of the clock rotation displaying the score 15, 30, 45, when the clock hand reaches 60, game end. Later, it is seen that the player can easily win thanks to the element of randomness, thus adding deuce.
In order for the game to still end at 60, one lowers the 45 point to 40, if a player eats points 50 will get 50, 2 points will stop. If the two of you tie again, it’s considered quitting, going back to 40, like that until someone gets two points in a row.
In the early tennis rules, the serve had to be 45 feet from the net. If he wins 1 point, he implies that he is closer to the net 15 ft, winning point 2 is considered going 15 ft more, winning point 3 is considered going forward 10 ft. Winning 4 points is considered touching the net and winning. Regardless of any conception, it is implied that a player can pass the stage to win a game.
The advantage rule still applies at deuce, so players must score two points in a row back to win the game. If the player fails to do this, the score will be returned to cancel. This rule is why some tennis matches can last three hours or more.
