Advantage yes, but have never heard advantage in or advantage out

Very familiar with ad in and ad out, but not in the professional game - in the pros, they use the player's name after 'Advantage'. If you're going to include those two expressions, you should also include '5', a variant of '15'...

May want to add the word "all" as well...as in "30 all". I'm fine with the ad in/ad out thing. Five could also be added as squinta said.

Isn't "zero" used in tiebreaks?

i have played and watched tennis (not professionally) for years and have never heard advantage in/out

I'm an avid tennis player myself, but to be sure, I did base this on the cited source above. I probably wouldn't add "5" because the actual score is "15," and "5" is just a short-hand way of saying it. I'm sure of the correctness of "ad in" and "ad out." @rwa12- I did consider adding "all," but without a number preceding it, it doesn't make sense, so I decided to leave it off because each of the numbers is already included. @miko- "0" is used in tiebreakers, but so are the integers higher than zero. I can add a note in that tiebreaker scores are not included.

Ad in and ad out are used when there are no umpires (so you don't see it in professional tennis). Without an umpire, the server is supposed to announce the score so ad in means the advantage is in his half of the court, and ad out means the advantage is outside his half the court.
