#5690. Asked by Frank. (Sep 05 00 3:06 PM)
A common (but unproven) explanation for the term 'love' to signify a score of zero is that it originates from the French term 'l'oeuf' which means 'The egg' in reference to the oval shape of the zero. Another explanation is based on the idea that to do something for love is to do something for nothing (zero).
