A tennis match is split into different parts, first games, then sets then the match. A game is one by the the first player to get over 40. The scoring goes as follows: 15, 30, 40 then game win. Unless both players tie on 40 then they must win two points consecutively. First attaining an advantage then a win. Games are played with one player serving throughout then in the next game the next player serves, this continues alternately. You must win 6 games to win a set, unless both players tie on 5 then a player must win 2 games consecutively to reach 7, if it reaches 6 all a tie breaker is played. This involves the players alternately serving 2 times, the player to reach 7 first wins, unless they tie at 6 then a player must win two games in a row. The player who wins the tie breaker wins the set. A tie break is played in all sets at 6 all, except the last one (the third set in women's tennis and the fifth set in the men's game). In the last set, players continue until one secures a two game lead. In women's tennis you must win 2 sets to win the match, in men's a player must win 3 sets. Bit complicated but you get the hang of it pretty sharpish.
