I think they just tell the player that they have to do the on court interview and signs balls
Thanks so much! It's always kind of awkward because it seems like the players half-listen to him It's good this thread got a sticky

OK- I'm too lazy to go further down the thread to see if this was answered slightly more completely.
The original game was french. In french (as in other languages) 0 is an egg. An egg is l'oeuf- from which came love.
As to the other scores, fifteen and thirty are one syllable words in french but forty five is quarante-cinq- got shortened to quarante and from there 40.

That's not the story I heard. The original game was English. They thought a player without points could only be motivated by love of the game, hence "love". And as for 40 they originally used 15-30-45-game, assisted in points keeping by a clock. When they figured you should have two points more to win a game, they adjusted 45 to 40, so as to leave room for 50=AD. 40-50-60 is more spaced out than 45-50-60 and should be easier for the umpire.

If it start to rain on a clay court with a retractable roof, what will they do? It doesn't necessarily mean the roof should be closed, they can play still in light rain. Will they close the roof immediately or not before the rain is too heavy to play without the roof?

That helped. Okay, a player serves from deuce court and also serves from ad court. He keeps on changing the side in the match.
Ex: Leander Paes is a deuce court player and Mahesh Bhupathi is an ad court player. This is what i heard, what makes them so?

In my opinion, they keep changing their sides while the other is serving. Yet, why people call them so? They play both the sides... ah?

That is obviously when they are returning the service, Paes returns from deuce court, Bhupathi from ad court. I've heard it's usually the better returner who returns from ad court, he returns most BPs.

It's more than who is a better returner to be honest - one could argue that it is important to return the the odd points in a game well so that the team need not get into a break point situation.

For two right-handed players, the one with a stronger backhand will normally take the ad court so that they can confidently return wide balls on that side. I think that works well with the Bhupathi-Paes pairing since most would regard Bhupathi to have the better backhand and Paes to have the better forehand (especially when stepping in to attack the net).

Wont it depend whether its left hander/ right hander? Ex: Consider two left handers playing as a team. Does it change ad and deuce courts?
Another ques, Leander always plays in deuce court and Bhupathi plays always in ad court while receiving the serve. Always, RIGHT?

Has anyone ever hit a shot with so much spin it bounces back over their net without the opponent hitting it? what would happen then?

The court doesn't change. The right hand side of the court is always called the deuce court and the left hand side is always called the ad court. It doesn't matter if you're right or left handed. It's not like cricket where the on-side and off-side are determined by whether the batsman is right or left handed.

If you have a left hander and a right hander, usually the left hander will start on the ad court and the right hander on the deuce court since they are more likely to have to use their forehands on their respective sides of the court. With two left handers, it is a good team strategy for the player with the better backhand to take the deuce court. The reverse is true where you have two right handers.

Back to the Bhupathi-Paes example...both of them are right handed. So if Bhupathi has a stronger backhand than Paes (and Paes has a better forehand than Bhupathi) then it makes perfect sense for him to always stay on the ad side of the court. Note that staying on one side of the court only applies in games where you are receiving - in your team's service games you alternate between sides as the server alternates from the deuce court to the ad court.

This question has been answered in this thread just a few pages ago (video examples included).
