Correct me if I'm wrong but is this the proper way to say the game score and how do you say "Advantage In and Advantage Out?"

15-0 = quindici zero
15-15 = quindici paio?
15-30 = quindici trenta
15-40 = quindici quaranta
30-30 = trenta paio?
40-40 = quaranta paio?
Advantage In = ?
Advantage Out = ?

Corrected in bold

15-0 = quindici zero
15-15 = Quindici Pari
15-30 = quindici trenta
15-40 = quindici quaranta
30-30 = Trenta Pari
40-40 (or deuce) = Parita
Advantage = Vantaggio
Game = Gioco

I never said or heard others say "trenta pari", but simply "parita'" .........

parita is used at deuce. Not at 30-30

Thanks everyone.

Maybe it sounds different because I play Sicilians.

Advantage In = Vantaggio Interno
Advantage Out = Vantaggio Esterno :)

No I am not. I just posted the add to spread the word.

Just curious. BTW, people abbreviates, as I mentioned. Like here in the US, where you hear love-five, instead of love-fifteen, etc etc.
I saw the ad, too bad requires presence in a office.

So how do Italians abbreviate the score then?

In the US, I used to abbreviate such as saying "Love-Five (0-15), Four-Three (40-30)," but when a USTA official corrected me at a tournament, I've said out the full score aloud ever since.
