Wink "New Balls..."

everytime the chair umpire says "deuce" in spanish, I understand "new balls"... First time I was like "duh, it's deuce and you wanna have new balls?".

what's the word in spanish?

Re: "New Balls..."

you guys are silly. new balls in spanish is "globos nuevos" i believe. "iguales" means "equals" in english. that's why they use "iguales" for "deuce."
