Tennis is known for many things. Not only is it one of the oldest sports to still be in existence today, it is also one of the few sports that men and women can compete in for equal prize money and with equal status in events. Compare this with other massive sports such as soccer where the women's game has very little exposure at all.
Tennis is also known for the interesting scoring system that is has. The points are not 1,2, 3, 4 as you might expect but 15, 30, 40 then advantage if required before game - and the score starts at 'love' for '0'! This is because the game is so old and has acquired these quirks since its inception.
