 +1 vote! +7 you voted Answer by  BilWitters (436) The scoring consists of points, games and sets. The points are 15, 30, 40 and then the player wins the game. If it is tied at 40-40, the score is deuce and a player must win two consecutive points. 6 games wins a set, at 6-6 there is a tiebreaker. Two out of three sets wins a match.

Fourth point = won "game" unless you tie at 40 points (called deuce). Must win two points consequetively after duece to win game. To win set must be 2 games up.

 +1 vote! +6 you voted Answer by  CoachC (28) Games are played to 4, win by 2. Instead of using 0, 1, 2, and 3; tennis uses Love, 15, 30, and 40. If both players get 40 (aka 3), it's deuce. From deuce, you must win 2 points in a row to take the game; one point gives "advantage". If your opponent wins on your advantage, it's deuce again.
