The fifth set score can go on indefinitely, but the other four sets will end up at 7-6 at the max.

The largest score ever achieved at Wimbledon in the fifth set alone was an astounding 70-68 score, played by John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, respectively.

How many games do you need to win a match in tennis?

A tennis match can be 2 out 3 sets or 3 out of 5 sets. For a player to win one set, they must win 6 games. There must also be a difference of 2 games. The score for a set to 6 could be: 6-0, 6-1, 6-2, 6-3, or 6-4. After that, a player must win 7-5 or 7-6. The 7-6 score means that a tiebreaker was played once the score became 6-6. The tiebreaker is won by the person who wins 7 points first and wins by 2 points.

What is overtime in tennis callled?

There's technically no such thing as "overtime", since tennis matches end based on the score rather than a time limit. Extra points played at the end of a set, when the score is too close (because a player needs to win the set by at least two games), are called a tiebreaker.

How can a tennis match end 11-9?

Usually, when the score in the set is 6-6, there is a tie-break between players, but in some cases tie-break is not allowed. For example, in grand slams in the fifth set (for men) or third set (for women). In that case, games are being played until one player has won two games more than his opponent.
