Best Answer

The score is 0 - 40, that is, the receiver needs one point to win (and "break" the serve), so he/she has three chances to score that point.

If the server wins the next point, the score is 15 - 40, and the receiver has two break points, or two chances left.

If the server wins again, the score is 30 - 40, and the receiver has one break point, that is, one chance to break service and win the game.

What does 7 6 7 mean in tennis scoring?

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.
