A match point is a point that, if won by the person who has the match point, would result in winning the match, thus the "match point." If someone has a match point, they are one point away from winning a match.

In a scenario where the person who has match point is up 40-0, then the person will have 3 match points (if the opponent wins two points, the person will still have an opportunity to win).

the point scoring system is as follows

15=1pt 30=2pt 40=3pt

so your answer is 40..unless both players have 3points which then is called " Duce" from there you play out until a player wins 2 points in a row

Each rally is considered a point.

The scoring in tennis goes like this:

love-love

love-fifteen

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!
