What is a set in a match of tennis?

A set in a tennis match consists of games. A game is won by winning 4 points going from, 15, 30, 40 to game. If the score is 40-40, then a player must win 2 points in a row to win the game. Once a player wins a game, it is scored 1-0. This is called the set score, to win a set the player must win 6 games but also must win by two. If the score is 5-5, the player can only win by getting 7-5 or in a tiebreak. A tiebreak occurs when the score is 6-6, then they play to win 7 points. Also you must win the tiebreak by two points, once this is achieved then the winner of the tiebreak wins the set 7 to 6.
