How do you serve for a tie break in tennis?

A tie-break, be a set tie-break or match tie-break, is treated like another game. If you were serving and won the last game to make the score 6-6 games, then your oppoennt would start serving the tie-break. When your opponent starts serving the tie-break, they only serve for one point. Then you serve for two points , then they serve for two points.... You switch sides when the score can be divisible by 6, ex. 3-3, 5-1, 6-6, 12-12....

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.
