Best Answer

The number of sets played in a tennis match can vary based on the type of player playing, the league or tournament they are playing in, and how many sets they want to play (if playing simply for fun).

Generally it goes as follows:

Young juniors (12 and under): 1 set of seven or eight games.

Older juniors (13-18): 2 sets of seven games followed by a 10-point tiebreaker for a third set or a full third set of seven games [if tied].

Adults (18+/Recreational): 2 out of 3 sets, seven games each.

Adults (Professionals): normal tournaments - 2 out of 3 sets, seven games each; major tournaments - 3 out of 5 sets, seven games each.

Of course, there are always exceptions and there is no standard except in organized leagues.
