MGM·Lion BS: What is a 'bagel' in tennis (14) RE: BS: What is a 'bagel' in tennis 23 Jun 16

Think it's just the UK, rather than US, usage, John -- one of those TransAtlantic variants on which I once OPd a thread which ran·&·ran. Often, when playing with my same-age cousin in my early teens, our usage would be to call out "My van" or "Your van". That was in late 1940s.
