    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 :)

    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.
