Murphy Jensen was in the tennis Museum in Roland Garros, and the guy from the Museum said that ... "love" in tennis came from the French word l'oeuf which means egg i think.. but the american or english mispronounced it... then it changed to become love...

interesting....

I think that is true that it comes from l'oeuf but never heard of Murphy Jensen?
