German for tennis fans

Do you play tennis?
Do you watch tennis?
Have you been following the matches at Wimbledon?

Have you ever considered to combine your love of watching/ playing tennis with learning German?
No? Well, you should ☺

In our fortnightly live video show Steven learnt some German tennis words and sentences which I found on this lovely German website Tennis Weblog

Some of the sentences came from this page: Tennisregeln für Anfänger einfach erklärt
Im Tennis gibt es das Einzel, das Doppel und das Mixed.
Beim Tennis gewinnt man, wenn man mehr Sätze als der Gegner gewinnt.

Some more from here: Zählweise im Tennis
Match, Satz und Spiel
Um ein Match zu gewinnen, muss man Sätze gewinnen.
Um einen Satz zu gewinnen, muss man (Aufschlag)spiele gewinnen.

The Wimbledon sentences came from here: Wimbledon 2017: Live-Stream, TV-Übertragung, Spielplan
Es werden 250 Ballmädchen und Balljungs die ca. 54.000 Bälle organisieren.
Die 39.000 Zuschauer werden wieder ca. 29.000 Flaschen Champagner und unzählige Erdbeeren verputzen.

 Of course, Eurosport has a lot of  interesting articles about Wimbledon (or other sports) and for more general tennis information in German go to Wikipedia or watch this video

No matter who won Wimbledon, as a tennis loving German learner you can now say that you’ve won

Spiel, Satz und Sieg

That is the German equivalent of game, set and match, which unfortunately I didn’t find out until after the video (it just shows how little I know about tennis ☺ )
