What is the impact or effect of breaking service in tennis?

In tennis it is assumed that it will be easier to score points on one's own serve because you can get an ace and also dictate the point. To "break" your opponent's serve means that you have beaten him/her on their own serve. When you break serve you go up an additional game towards winning the set and your opponent must "break back" to even up the number of games won in the set.

What does back on serve mean in tennis?

In tennis matches, it is more common to win games while serving rather than while the other player is serving. So, when both players are winning their own serve games (holding serve) the set is said to be "on serve." When a player wins a game as a receiver, that player is said to have broken the opponent's serve and is now "up a break." If the other player is able to "break back" the score again appears as if nobody lost their serve game, and the set is "back on serve."
