South Florida welcomes the Delray Beach Open by The Venetian Las Vegas to Delray Beach February 13-22, 2015. This 10 day ATP Champions Tour and ATP World Tour is televised internationally in over 125 countries and draws over 50,000 tennis enthusiasts as spectators.
Game, set match all begin with “love”. “Love being the term for zero is one of the most celebrated puzzles in tennis,” said Ossian Shine, author of “The Language of Tennis.” Shine pointed to the game’s roots, 12th century France, a game called “real tennis”. The server would reportedly shout “tenez” — take heed, like “fore” in golf — which led to the sport’s name. “L’oeuf” means egg in French, and because an egg looks like a zero, some believe English mispronunciations changed the word to “love”.
