“What’s the definition of endless love?"/"Two blind people playing tennis.”

“Love means nothing to a tennis player” is an old joke on the scoring in tennis (where “love” does mean nothing). Another joke is:

Q: What’s the definition of endless love?
A: Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles playing tennis.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 1983. A popular song at that time was “Endless Love” (1981), a duet with Lionel Richie and Diana Ross.
