the first two numbers show that the set was decided by a tie break, as its only in a tie break that the game tally can be 7-6. The last number shows you the number of points that the person who lost the set got in that tie break, in this case, is 7. This tells you that the person who won the set got 2 more points in the tie break, i.e. 9. So 7-6 (13) means it went all the way to 15-13 in the tie break.

US Tennis Open winner?

When you win in tennis it is called winning a MATCh. Let me explain the scoring. When two people play tennis they play 6 games to get to what is called a set. The most common scoring of a tennis match is 2 out of 3 sets, but for the men's pro tour it is 3 out of 5. In a GAME, you have to win 4 points. If you have zero you say love, if you have 1 point, you say 15, if you have 2 you say 30, if you have 3 you say 40 if you have won the next point then you have won that game. You have to win 6 games to get a set. If you tie with your opponent 6-6 then you play a tiebreaker to 7 points to determine who wins the last set.
