Tennis Trivia Questions

1. Marley and Danny want to play a tennis match but can't agree who serves first. How is this determined?

From Quiz
Could You Be a Tennis Umpire?

Answer: By a coin toss

The fairest way to determine the first server (who does have a bit of an advantage) is of course random. Thus, a coin flip is used in the official rules. The official ITF rules require that the toss is made prior to warming up on the court.

2. The name "tennis" comes from the French word "tenez". What does "tenez" mean?

From Quiz Tales of Tennis History

Answer: Hold!

There are several translations used for the word "tenez", including "hold", "receive", and "take heed". The idea was that the server would call out this word to his opponent before he served, and the recipient of the serve needed to pay attention. Tennis was mostly an indoor game in the beginning, and courts were not uniform in size or construction. Balls would bounce off the walls of rooms, as well as whatever objects they landed on that were also in the room, as it was not cleared out for the game. It is believed that the game was called tennis by the sixteenth century.
