What is the origin of the tennis scoring system?

It seems like a crazy system to me.

One idea is that scoring is based on the clock that were on courts. Deuce comes from the French word deux. "Love" comes from the French "l"oeuf", meaning nothing.

Men's tennis has three sets to win, Women's 2 sets. It' mean that who first win 3 or 2 sets he win the match. Each set include up to 7 games. One single game has different scoring system. Each winner ball means 15 small point. Schortly if you win 4 balls in the row, you win the gem.
