Tennis words in other languages?

I have always been curious about this . I know in French ther is filet= net, egalite= deuce. Are there other words?

In Spansih to say advantage would you say ventaja

In French:

Deuce: égalité
Advantage: avantage
Forehand: Coup droit
Backhand: revers
Unforced error: faute directe/faute non provoquée
Winner: Coup gagnant
Double fault: Double faute
Ace: ace (but officially it should be service gagnant )
Game: jeu
Love: zéro
Fifteen: quinze
Thirty: trente
Forty: quarante
First serve: premier service
Second serve: Deuxième service
Ball: balle
Racquet: raquette

Those are the basic words. Tell me if you want to know more.

I think in Flanders 'eerste opslag' and 'tweede opslag' is also used quite often (correct me if I'm wrong)...

In French:

break point: balle de break (I've heard "balle de bris" at last year's Canadian Open )
tie-break: jeu décisif, or tie-break (I've heard "bris d'égalité" at last year's Canadian Open )
