You must win 4 games to win the set so that the final game score would be:

5-7

you must win by a minimum of 2 games and in this case u must break your opponents service play at least twice

But if they were to win a game and make it 6-6 before you could win that final game then you would have to go into a tiebreaker where to win you must get 7 points AND also be winning by 2 points at the same time

hope this helped =]

It is impossible for each player to win three sets in a match that is out of five sets. Only one man can win three sets, while the other can only get two.

Because the match is best of 3. Who ever wins two sets wins the game. This is done in Women's singles, and the doubles.

You can't. If the match goes to 2 sets all then the last set, the 5th set is the decider

In professional mens tennis only the four majors, or grand slams, are best of 5 sets. All of the other tournaments throughout the year are best 2 of 3 sets
