How has the scoring system in tennis contributed to its unique character?

The scoring system in tennis is distinct and contributes to the sport’s character. Tennis matches are broken down into games and sets. In order to win a game, a player needs to beat six others by at least two. In games, scoring goes from love (0), to fifteen (30), and forty (40), before the winner is determined. When players reach deuce, (tied at 40), they need to win by 2 consecutive points. This system creates a thrilling element of unpredictability and tension, often leading to dramatic shifts in momentum.

Who was credited with standardizing today’s game of tennis?

Major Walter Clopton Wingfield can be credited with a large part of the standardization of modern tennis. In 1873, Wingfield created a version of Sphairistike that was played at an hourglass shaped grass court. Wingfield’s version included a simplified score system and equipment similar to that used today. This iteration set the foundations of lawn tennis. By 1877 Wimbledon Championships, which consolidated the game’s structure and rules, were held.
