But you never hear, "game, Mr. Federer" or "Jeux, Monsieur Blake"
In one, they are addressing the person. In the other (the result) they are announcing about a person. So to me this makes reasonable sense.
With regards to the Miss and Mrs, I guess it's mainly an accident of history, since in the early years there were plenty of Mrs.es playing at Wimbledon, a country club where you politely addressed a Mrs as such, and distinguished that person from an unmarried Miss. (Just a guess I have no idea)
