The 2012 edition of the oldest tennis tournament in the world, now known as The Championships, Wimbledon, begins today at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Wimbledon, London.
But have you ever wondered why a nil [zero] score is given as "love" in a tennis match? Well, one theory is that the term is a corruption of French l'oeuf, meaning "egg". The zero used to be drawn in the shape of an egg. There are other theories about the etymolgy of the term but this is my favourite!
