Each rally is considered a point.

The scoring in tennis goes like this:



fifteen-fifteen or love-thirty

fifteen-thirty or love-forty

thirty-thirty or the player that had forty in the score love-forty just won the match.

If the score is thirty-forty and the player with thirty wins the point, the score is now forty-forty, or "deuce." To win the game from a score of deuce, a player must win two consecutive points. The scoring would go like this:

forty-forty ("deuce")

add-in (the player serving won the deuce point) or add-out (the player not serving won the deuce point). The score goes from deuce to add and back to deuce as long as it takes for one player to win two consecutive points.

I hope that helps!
