because the most primitive of tennis originated in the palace, and would therefore scoring local materials. You can toggle the clock to get the points, each will get a sub-clock rotation quarter, which is 15 minutes (a quarter, a moment), Similarly, the clock will have two points to 30 points, of course, All are based on the basis of their convenience.

For 40 minutes, it is more strange, it is not a multiple of 15. This is because in English, 15 min pronounced "fifteen", as the pairs of syllables, while the 30 points pronounced "thirty", is also a two-syllable;, but 45 minutes, English pronounced "forty-five", into three syllables, when the British people feel a little awkward-sounding, does not meet the "convenience" principle, then put it into a double-syllable with 40 points (forty).
