How did tennis scoring evolve? Daria Gavrilova’s one-minute explanation.


For an outsider, tennis has a bizarre scoring system. As everything in life, the love-15-30-40-game scoring didn’t come out of nowhere, there is a reasonable story behind this unique system. Australian Daria Gavrilova explained it in less than a minute on TikTok.

Before you watch it, the magic word is the clock. Can you guess now why we have 15-30-40? The origin of tennis scoring system is not 100% certain, this is just the most probable theory.
