Historia Del Tenis (Inglés)
Some historians date tennis as far back as Egyptian times. Tennis was first played in France about 900 years ago, with people using the palms of their hands. They say the Arabic word for the palm of the hand, rahat, is the origin of the word racket. But the most common view is that it was a crude courtyard ball game invented by 11th or 12th century French monks.
The name tennis is said to come from the French word 'Tenez!' (from the verb tenir meaning 'to take'). It means 'take this', which the monks would yell as they served the ball with their hand. No one really knows how the scoring started, but "deuce" is based on the French word "deux", meaning two, when two people are on the same point.
