Tennis Scoring

Recommended Posts

I'm starting to get the feeling that you're starting dumb posts for the hell of it when you could easily look up info on a website. But, I'll humor you.

Points: 0, 15, 30, 40. After 40, if you score another point, you win the game.

Games: First person to win 6 games, winning by two, games, wins the set. I don't feel like explaining tiebreakers.

Sets: In all women's competition and most men's competition, the first to win two out of three sets wins the match. However, at major tournaments such as the US Open or Wimbledon, men play best 3 out of 5.

0 is called LOVE

DUECE is what it's called when the score is 40-40.

The player who is serving has his/her listed first.

Their is a MATCH, a SET, a GAME, and a POINT.

It takes 4 points to win a game.

It takes 6 games to win a set. But you must win by two games.

If it is tied at 6-6 then they play a tiebreak.

Thus, a set cannot be won 6-5. It must be won 7-5 or 8-6 or 9-7 and so on.

Like he said, in the 4 major tournaments, the men play best 3 out of 5 sets and the women play best 2 out of 3 to win the MATCH. In all other tournaments, the men play best 2 out of 3 as the women do.

In the Olympics, the men play best 2 out of 3 sets except for the gold medal match which is best 3 out of 5 sets (MEN)

You also have to win a match by two points.

If both players are tied 40-40, it is Deuce.

The next point gives that player Advantage.

That player needs another point to win the game, and 6 points (or more, you need 2 more than your opponent) to win the set.
