In tennis, the scoring system is unique and somewhat complex. Points progress from love (zero), to 15, 30, and 40, and a game is won by the first player to reach 40 with a two-point lead. This unusual system is thought to have originated from the face of a clock, with quarter-hour increments. The reason for the two-point lead rule is to provide a clear winner, avoiding any chance of a tie. It's a system that keeps matches exciting, as there's always a chance for a player to make a comeback.
