i am new to tennis. it seems crazy that theres no score board, imagine if in basketball, the refs and the players had to keep score? thats crazy right? i dont know. it seems dumb. can someone tell why in 2004 they cant get a score board up. ????

I'm not sure, but I think that the scoreboards are controlled directly or indirectly by the umpires.

oh. and no one said anything? they cant go back and replay the game(is it called a match or a set in tennis)?

thank you for understanding my ignorance!! :)
