Re: "We shall humbly take our seat in the front" The chichat thread of the jojotards

Oh I meant to ask the frenchies a question. I notice here they're saying '15 par tout' but I believe at RG they were saying '15 a un'. (sp?)Why is that?

Re: "We shall humbly take our seat in the front" The chichat thread of the jojotards

what a match

To Tess : we say "15 partout", which means something like "15 everywhere" or "15 for everybody", and we also say "15 A". I don't really know what "A" means in this case. It's a tennis thing, you can't say that anywhere else.

Re: "We shall humbly take our seat in the front" The chichat thread of the jojotards

As far as I know, there is no difference between 15a and 15 partout. It's at the umpire choice. There is many explanation on the origin of the 15a, but no definitive answer. I like the idea that it's the abbreviation of 15 à 15, but that's just me.

Re: "We shall humbly take our seat in the front" The chichat thread of the jojotards

hey tess I think they're saying "quinzaine" at 15-all, but yeah, I wonder about that, too.

Great win and a match up to come against (very probably) Federer.

Good to make another quarterfinal in MS this year.

Everything is to win tomorrow!
