If you’re new to betting on tennis, you may find the scoring system a bit confusing at first. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Let’s break it down in simple terms so you can decipher tennis scores like a pro.

Understanding Tennis Scoring

In tennis, the scoring system is a bit different from other sports. A match is typically played to the best of three or five sets, with each set consisting of games. To win a set, a player must be the first to win six games, with a margin of at least two games. If the score reaches 6-6, a tiebreaker is usually played to determine the winner of the set.

Game Scoring

Within each game, the scoring goes like this:

  • 0 points = Love
  • 1 point = 15
  • 2 points = 30
  • 3 points = 40
  • 4 points = Game

If both players reach 40-40, it’s called “Deuce.” The player who scores the next point after Deuce gets the “Advantage,” and if they win the next point, they win the game.

Set and Match Points

When it comes to sets and matches, keep in mind:

  • To win a set, a player must win by at least two games.
  • Winning two sets in a three-set match or three sets in a five-set match secures the victory.

Now that you understand the basics of tennis scoring, you’re ready to make informed bets on upcoming matches. Remember to consider players’ form, head-to-head records, and playing surface when placing your bets.
