注释
Surprisingly, the origin of the word tennis is not precisely known, even though much is known about the history of this sport. The word in the form tenetz is first recorded in a work written around 1400. The game referred to is what is now called court tennis, or real tennis, which is played on a large indoor court with a specially marked-out floor and high cement walls off which the ball may be played. It seems likely that the Middle English form tenetz is from tenetz, an Anglo-Norman variant of the Old French word tenez, the imperative of tenir, “to hold,” and meaning “receive,” said by the server to his opponent. As this evidence indicates, tennis originated in medieval France, but the French called the game, then as now, la paume. By tennis we do not mean what tenetz or la paume meant but rather lawn tennis, a term first recorded around 1874, shortly after an early form of lawn tennis, descended from court tennis, was introduced. Unlike court tennis, which is traditionally associated with the rich and the royal,tennis is open to players from a wide spectrum of society, although it certainly is not unconnected with the rich and the royal.
令人惊讶的是,尽管人们对这项运动的历史知之甚多,但tennis 一词的起源却不被人所详细了解。 在约1400年,此词以tenetz 的形式第一次出现在书面上。 其所指的运动就是现在所谓的court tennis 或 real tennis , 这是一种在有标记的地板的室内场地上进行的运动,场地四周有很高的泥灰墙。而中古英语的tenetz 有可能是从 tenetz 这个古法语中的盎格鲁-诺曼变体 tenez 得来的。 而该古法语词又是tenir 一词的祈使式, 意为“抓住,握住”,而发球人对其对手说时意义为“接住”。这一例子似乎说明网球运动起源于中世纪的法国,但是在法语中,这项运动从古至今一直被称为la paume 。 我们用tennis 这一词其实指代的不是 tenetz 或者 la paume 指代的事物,而是 lawn tennis 这一在1874年前后第一次被记录的词语所指代的事物,此时由庭院网球演变而来的草地网球的一种早期形式正在被介绍开来。 不象传统上与富人和贵族联系紧密的庭院网球,网球运动适合社会各阶层的人,当然这并不是说这一运动就与富人和贵族没有联系
