第003讲:网球记分 - Tennis Scoring

作者:VOA体育美语 发布日期:9-13-2008

Y: Hi, 大家好。我是杨晨。

P: And I'm Patrick. And today we are playing a game of tennis.

Y: Patrick It's your serve!

P: To serve is to put the tennis ball in play by throwing it up into the air and hitting it with a racquet.

Y: 别罗唆了,赶快发球。Just serve.

P: OK. Here I go! (thwok, thwok) Good return, Yang Chen!

Y: Hey, Patrick, 你的球 出界了。So it is my point.

P: That means the score is "Love Fifteen". Love for me and fifteen for you.

Y: Love? 爱?这和爱情有什么关系?

P: Love in tennis scoring means “Zero”。

Y: 好浪漫。 可是我怎么会有15分呢?

P: Tennis scoring is very complicated, isn't it? To win a game a player must win four points and two more points than his opponent. The first point is called "fifteen".

Y: 那么 the second point is called "thirty"?

P: That's right. The second point is called "thirty," and the third point is called ...

Y: Forty-five?

P: No.

Y: Why not forty-five?

P: It's just the tradition now, the French started it .

Y: 那他们的数学一定不好。

Okay, serve again, Patrick! (Thwok, Thwok).

P: Oh no, I missed the ball!

Y: "Love thirty"!

P: I guess I'm losing.

Y: But at least you still have love!!!
